American Oak Infusion Spiral Light Toast contributes fresh oak, coconut and fruit flavors.
Infusion Spirals are easy to use, time saving, economical, environmentally friendly, as well as being high-quality.

Several years ago, Russell Karasch of the Barrel Mill in Avon Minnesota came up with a wonderful idea: Create an oak alternative that delivers as good or better results than the American and French Oak barrels currently used to create premium wines. And he did just that. Not only did he create this perfectly toasted oak alternative, but he did so in a way that gives you unrivaled taste and aroma, while saving you time and your bottom line. Infusion Spirals are made of ultra premium American & French Oakno sapwood, no bark, no knots. This unique process distributes the flavor evenly and can fully flavor a barrel in as little as six weeks.

Vanilla Oak
The spiral adds a nicer oak flavor than chips. It has more depth and a nicer vanilla taste. While the chips taste like wood, this taste has several components.

The best oak for wine
I've tried cubes and chips and for my money this has a nicer , more even oakiness._x000D_I just lower it in the carboy and 30 days later start tasting.

Excellent oak character
The best way to oak your wine. The flavor gets more intense so you should start tasting it weekly starting at 4 weeks. These spirals are better than oak cubes.

Good Oak flavor
The flavor and oakiness gets intense quickly, so I taste every few days. Or you can try breaking it in half, and oaking longer, which is what I do. This gives you 2 uses for the price of one.

Good for cask ale
Since I don't have a barrel I make cask ale by adding this after fermentation is complete. I taste it after 10 days, and every 3 days until I have the flavor I like. It has a more vanilla taste than French oak.

makes wine taste better
I put some oak in my wine to make it taste better. I use glass carboys to ferment in, so I add a few w inches of oak for a month before I bottle.

Great Cask flavor
I prefer these to the oak cubes for for beer brewing. I think the flavor is nicer and cleaner. i soak this in a bucket with my beer for a couple of weeks, then remove it, and age the beer for 3 months in a carboy.

Good oak character
Don't leave it in too long because it has a lot of surface area and will really impart a lot of oak character.

I threw a few of these to make a cherry porter taste a little oakey. It worked well and the beer has a bit of a barrel flavor. So it did it's purpose well!

Nice flavor
The flavor becomes more pronounced the longer you leave them in. After 6 weeks the oak character was evident. I like the flavor.

Are infusion sticks easily used and removed from a 5 gallon glass carboy?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They work amazingly well for infusion. You don't have to worry about swelling and about removing them from the carboy, I tied a piece of fishing string around the top spiral to easily remove it otherwise it would be hard to remove unless completely empty....hope this helps

I have not tried oak , how much of a spiral should I use for one gallon?
W I on Jan 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hello Kenny,

Thank you for choosing Midwest Supplies! The suggested dosage for the spirals is 2 per 6 gallons, so for 1 gallon, I would use 1/3-1/2 of 1 stick. I hope that this helps!
