Dark Toast Oak Chips, 1oz
This would impart very important flavor elements and qualities to the finished product. Home brewers and wine makers can recapture these characteristics by steeping oak chips in beer or wine after fermentation. American oak is commonly used for this purpose due to its stronger oak flavor.
Sanitize oak chips by steaming or mixing with a small amount of boiling water. Place the oak chips in a steeping bag and submerge in the liquid after fermentation has ceased. Flavor will develop up to 2 weeks. Remove the oak chips when the intended level of flavor is achieved.
