To use, rinse with water and steam sterilize in a vegetable cooker for 20 minutes, and add to fermenter. These are toasted for a crisper oak character. Unlike cubes which take a few weeks to impart flavor, oak chips impart their flavor relatively rapidly in beer. Use 1 to 2 oz. per 5 gallons, leaving the chips in contact with the beer for at least 8 days. Produced from American oak which has a slightly more aggressive flavor than French oak chips .

Great Addition

Review by Spence on 9/4/2011

I recently brewed a batch of stout that I wanted to just have something different than the regular oatmeal stout taste to. So I soaked these woodchips in whiskey for about a week and dropped them into my secondary. What an excellent flavor it added to the overall stout. Neither the whiskey or oak flavor was too overpowering and it created a nice smooth brew.

great character

Review by Daniel on 3/25/2014

I added these to an IPA and it came out fantastic. I put 1 ounce in 5 gallons and let it sit for a month. The oak character was just right and not too over the top. I also have a stout currently aging with some of these oak chips that I soaked in bourbon for a month.

Great for adding earthy aromas and flavors

I recently aged an imperial stout with these and some roasted pablano peppers. It turned out great, with the oak chips adding some nice earthy complexity.
