Oak Cubes American Heavy Toast 3.5oz
Fraser Mills Fermentation Supplies
Heavy Toast American Oak Cubes (3.5 oz / 100 g) -- These oak cubes (aka oak beans) lend an intense aromatic sweetness and a coffee-like campfire/roasted attribute. Also provides a full mouthfeel. Oak cubes allow for homebrewers or winemakers to impart a terrific oak flavour and aroma by aging in carboys, plastic buckets or steel tanks. Typically added during secondary fermentation during the aging stage, these cubes require a longer contact time that the traditional oak chips, making these more suitable for long term aging beers (Imperial Stouts, Barleywines). Longer contact time means longer extraction of flavours (3-6 months), which will lead to a much more complex and smooth combination of flavours and aromatics.
