Oak Avantage® American Oak Chips are sourced from the highest quality staves and air dried for 18 months. The staves are cut to a uniform size and toasted to maintain delicate flavors and aromas.
Rich flavors and aromas – butterscotch, smoke, spice and hint of vanilla and coconut
Excellent for “revitalizing” old or aging barrels
Pack Size: 25 lbs Application and Dose Rates
Finishing: Add directly to the brite beer tank to compliment beer flavor and aroma during storage
Barrel Supplementation: Add directly to neutral barrels to renew oak flavors and aroma
Dose Rate Range: 70-300 g/bbl (for oak flavors and aromas that range from subtle background notes to bold oak character as determined to be optimal for that particular beer)
Blending Beer: Dose the oak at a high rate directly into a smaller volume of beer to make a concentrated blending beer for precise blending back into larger finished brews at the brite beer tank or barrels
