French 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 Oak sapwood, no bark, no knots. This unique process distributes the flavor evenly and can fully flavor a barrel in as little as six weeks.

Good oak alternative
They say that the increased surface area in these spirals helps to extract the oak flavor more quickly. The form is helpful in that you can attach a piece of fishing line to one end and leave the tail end of the line hanging out of the carboy in order to remove the oak without having to rack.

Nice Oak Flavor
Great Oak flavor and aroma. Be careful you don't leave it in too long because it has a lot of surface area and will impart a lot of oak flavor. _x000D_Make sure to check on the progress often in order to get to the level that you want.

Good oak flavor
These have a large surface area and give off a lot of oak flavor quickly. After a while I will taste every week, to see if the desired flavor is reached. I've over oaked with them in the past, so don't just leave them in and forget about them..

I like the flavor
The longer you leave it in, the more pronounced the flavor. _x000D_It had a great oak character after six weeks. I sampled it once a week to get it just right.

good oak
The spiral gave my wine a terrific oak flavor and an enhanced aroma. I let the wine age for a year after that and it mellowed into a complex delicious wine.

Great Oak flavor
These spirals give my wine a tremendous oak taste. In fact I have to monitor how the oaking is coming along, lest I overdo it. The flavor and aroma are perfect for wine._x000D_

Vanilla
Fabulous oak flavor, with a subdued vanilla taste. I've used these in 6 kits and been very happy. In fact one kit I over did it, and hope that in the 3 years I plan to age the wine the oak lessens in power.

Vanilla oak flavor
Excellent oak taste that's better than what I get from cubes. It has a lot of surface area so it quickly saturates the wine and you need to stay on top of it and sample it frequently.
