Oak Chips - French Light Toast - 2 oz (56 g)
With the French Light Toast Oak Chips, you will be able to enhance your beer with flavours typical for barrel-aged beers.
Once a common practice in the brewing industry, today, ageing beers in oak barrels is done mostly by craft breweries for special brews. The complexity of flavours obtained during this process goes very well with Barleywines, Imperial Stouts, Porters and Strong Ales; however, you can achieve interesting results with just any beer style.
Typically, barrel ageing is a lengthy process that can last for months or even years. But with the French Light Toast Oak Chips, you can infuse your beer with complex flavours over a much shorter period of time.
|Description:||Sourcing a French oak barrel can be really hard for a homebrewer, not to mention the costs involved and the total volume tailored for commercial brewing and winemaking.
French Light Toast Oak Chips provide an elegant solution to this problem: they are cheap, easy to get, suit a homebrew batch of just any size, and allow obtaining results over a much shorter period of time.
Since the overall surface area of the chips is larger than that of a small barrel, the beer is infused with the characteristic nutty, toasty, and vanilla flavours of light toast French oak in a matter of days or weeks instead of months.
Just put the chips in a muslin bag and add it to the secondary for maturation, and you will start noticing substantial results in a matter of days.
