Great product!!! I used them for a little different reason than most… to help impart flavor/scent to some pipe tobacco I am blending! Since the pieces aren’t all dried out it works wonderfully! Thanks!
These staves add flavor and depth to whatever you're trying to infuse. I don't reuse the staves. Also more affordable and practical than whole barrels.
I have brewed this brown ale several times and decided to try it on oak. I've used chips before, but hated working with them. I had to snap/bend them to get them to fit into a mason jar for a sanitizing bourbon soak for a day or two. I added them to an empty CO2 purged 5 gallon carboy, then racked the brown ale from primary. I left it for about 4 weeks and it was perfect for what I wanted. It was noticeable and really added a great note. If I had gone 3 months and/or used 4 staves instead of 2, it may have given a big flavor punch.
I'm using these to flavor kombucha and the results are fantastic. I was a little wary of bacteria entering my secondary fermentation through these guys, so I wiped them down with a little bourbon. No problems, amazing flavor. Will definitely be buying again.
You will need to cut them up if you are adding to a glass carboy. I also charred them on the grill before soaked them in bourbon.
