Description

Cubes have a longer contact time than traditional chips do, which make them better for long-term aging of wines and beers. Also, longer contact time means longer extraction of flavors (3-6 months), which leads to a more complex combination of flavors. Chips are usually done giving flavor after a week, thereby contributing a harsh, flat oak flavor.

Our cubes are fire toasted and cut by Stavin, a leading supplier of high-quality oak alternatives to top commercial wineries.

Will these cubes fit through the neck of a glass carboy?
Russell on Feb 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will. French Oak staves will also fit, if you get the ones made for carboys. Staves do a better job...not so much end grain as cubes.

Oak it on up
Good for beers or wine. Much easier to use than the chewed up powder.
