American Oak Infusion Spirals - Medium Plus Toast

SKU: 40580



American Oak Infusion Spiral Medium Plus Toast is between Medium and Heavy Toast. It has aromas of honey, roasted nuts and a hint of coffee and spices.

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.

Great for giving an oak aged Flavor to Beer
I use this when I want to give the impression of a cask ale. Gives the beer a great cask ale taste without having to use a cask. Easy to use, great flavors!

great and easy clean up!
I used these to oak a blueberry wine I made and just popped the first bottle from the batch. The oak is very apparent and there was no saw dust or cubes to worry about destroying my garbage disposal when it was time to clean out the carboy. After siphoning the wine out I just turned the carboy over and the spiral fell right out. Next time I may add two spirals to increase the "oakiness"

I prefer the French Oak, but this is good too
Nice flavor, maybe some hints of sweetness or vanilla._x000D_Aroma was pleasent._x000D_The flavor becomes more pronounced the longer you leave them in, so check on them every few weeks.

Great taste and value
I used two of these to flavor five gallons of a multi-berry melomel and was very pleased with the results. After 6 weeks, oak character was evident, but not overpowering. I intend to age this batch in the bottle for two years, so I can't report on the final results. However, initial indications are very positive and I will use this product (and specifically the medium-plus toast) again.

Tomm S on Feb 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I put one oak stick in 6 gallon carboy ,about 6 weeks the longer you leave it in you get more of oak taste theirs no limit on how long they usually age wine 3-6 months in oak barrels .
Should these be sanitized before use? If so, what is the best way?
Rodney S on Dec 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I use them to age whiskey. If 100 proof alcohol doesn't already sanitize it I don't know what will. I believe they are ready to drop in. It's just wood that's been toasted.
