DetailsAmerican Oak Infusion Spiral Medium Toast has less tannins but more bouquet, so it will impart more aroma than flavor. It has a warm, sweet character with strong vanilla overtones.
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.

4.8 / 5.06 ReviewsNice!I tried the Light Toast spiral for my first batch of wine. The spiral cut of the wood created high surface area. I bottled the batch and tested a glass. The oak is subtle, but definitely there.March 21, 2012Great for cask-flavorI used this in a batch of beer instead of the oak chips. It was much cleaner and produced a very nice woodiness to the final product. It was a bit difficult to extract from the carboy, but that made up for the snall shavings left with the oak chips. The flavor addition was subtle, but definitely there.December 9, 2012ExcellentI have used these oak infusion spirals with wonderful results. Family and friends have expressed interest in the use of these spirals to increase the enjoyment of the wine I have made with Midwest wine kits.March 2, 2013Would recommendI used this product for my wine....the flavors I were exactly as described...great productMarch 6, 2013barrel tast for $8i added this to my ipa in carboy for 5 weeks and wow the oak really came through this is a must have for that out of the barel tast fo wines and beerMarch 31, 2013spiralsThey are the best for adding oak favors!
