Oak Chips 100g - French Medium Toast

Oenological advantages (according to toast levels and recipes)

  •             Adds complex aromas: toasted almond, caramel, vanilla, coconut, warm bread, toast and spicy aromas.
  •             Develops wine structure
  •             Increases mouth-feel
  •             Improves sweetness

Dosage: As a rule of thumb, we would suggest a dosage rate between 0.5 - 3 g of wood pieces per 1 litre of wine. In fact, it is up to the winemaker to decide. It all depends on the intensity of the oak character they are willing to give to the wine.

Product should be stored away from:

  •             Light and humidity
  •             Strong smelling products (gasoline, solvents, varnish, garlic…) and chemicals
  •             Any source of heat

Perfect oakyness for homebrew
This oak comes in small enough chunks that you can easily measure it to use exactly as much as you need, but big enough so you are not polluting your wine with fine particulate you need to filter out. Great for homebrewers that dont have the luxury of a big oak barrel, or want to make smaller custom batches.

Stan the Man Reviews: French Toasted Oak Ships
This is a rather small package but, since the pieces are rather small, they compact well and you get a fair amount I make fake bourbon and cognac out of vodka, white rum, and neutral grain spirits so I can't speak to how well these work with wine. I never did even like wines with an oak or woody taste.

I have bought white oaks chips, both the medium and heavy toast, in the past as well as Jack Danniel's Old No. 7 whiskey barrel chips which are sold primarily for barbecuing and smokers. I prefer the heavy toast and Jack Danniels mixed together for a bourbon taste.

These are my attempt to make something like brandy or cognac and I have still to decide on whether they work well or not.

A guy I knew once who made moonshine rum with the little Megahome distiller Amazon sells said he prefers white oak.

On reading up on cognace, I found out that French bradies are often also made with white oak.

Still, I give them five stars since they almost immediately colored the vodka I put them into. Oak chips and the Jack Daniels take a while to start and a few hours to a day or so to develop.

I would recommend these it they suit your particular purpose in wine making since I do believe they would work just fine for you. That is why I gave them vive stars since there is probably not much wrong with them for the purposes intended.
