Description

WineStix are a new form of oak integration for wine, designed to give new barrel flavors with an extraction time similar to cubes. The combination of Short and Long grains result in amazing gradience of flavor similar to barrels, while extracting significantly quicker! These are Medium toast French Oak staves, and depending on the wine, will impart flavors of vanilla and coffee, while clearing out negative vegetal flavors and astringency from the wine. This is a two pack of WineStix, sized specifically for a 5-6 gallon carboy of wine. WineStix will easily fit through the mouth of a glass carboy, and can be attached to a string via the drilled hole for easy removal!

One carboy Winestix will treat 5-6 gallons of wine.

Hello, can I use the same stick more than once?
Kevin Hart on Jul 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve had the same question. After a few years you can acquire a pretty sizable stash of sticks, so I gave reusing the sticks a try. I ended up with more wine than new sticks.
The sticks get pretty full of gunk so I cleaned them up with a wire wheel then re-charred them using a gas torch. I used them at rate of two where I would have normally only used only one (cowboy logic).
When all was said and done, I still buy new sticks every year. I prefere to know what I’m getting versus guessing that my efforts were going to work.plus it is a fair amount of work to get the sticks reworked.
Hope this helps.
