Key Features:

  1. European Cask Flavors:
    • Oak chips are derived from barrel-making oak wood chippings.
    • They provide the elusive European cask flavors found in traditional oak barrels.
    • Expect hints of vanilla, spice, and toasted wood.
  2. Heartwood Quality:
    • Made exclusively from heartwood (not bark or sapwood), ensuring consistent flavor extraction.
    • Heartwood contains the compounds responsible for oak’s rich character. No Bark/Sapwood or cheaper oak is used.
    • These oak chips are superior or at par in quality with the oak staves used in commercial winery.
  3. Easy to Use:
    • Simply add 1-4 grams of oak chips per liter of your wine, beer or whiskey.
    • Allow 2-4 weeks for the full flavor to develop.
    • These chips are lightly toasted, but you can adjust the darkness by further toasting them in an oven.
  4. Advantages Over Oak Barrels:
    • Affordability: Unlike oak barrels, oak chips won’t break the bank.
    • Sterility: Oak chips don’t harbor bacteria, reducing the risk of vinegar infection.
    • No Leakage or Cracking: Wooden barrels can leak or crack, requiring maintenance. Oak chips are use-and-throw.
    • Some scrupulous brewers are selling second hand oak barrels to home brewers. Please note that whiskey has ethanol that is a solvent. It has already leached and extracted out all useful tannins from the barrels. Using these barrels in wine making will not yield any improvement in flavors. Oak chips are supposed to be discarded after use. Oak Barrells are supposed to be shaved so that fresh oak is exposed.

Oak Chips in Different Beverage Styles:

  • Red Wine Aging:
    • During alcoholic fermentation, adding oak chips improves tannin structure and stabilizes color in red wines.
    • Expect almond and dried fruit aromas without overwhelming woodiness.
    • Sterilize oak chips by soaking them in boiling water or neutral spirit (vodka) before adding to the fermenter.
  • Single Malt Whiskey Aging:
    • Oak chips contribute to the golden color and complex flavors of whiskey.
    • Soak them in neutral spirit to extract the desired characteristics.
    • Oak aging improves quality of any distilled spirit or even cheaper whiskey that you procured from the market.
  • Cask Aged Beer:
    • Certain beer recipes especially porters, IPA, goose and lambic beers require the astringency of the tannins of the Oak. For this reason brewmasters often add oak instead of dry hopping during maturation tanks for better beer flavors.
  • Sparkling Wine and White Wine Aging:
    • The characteristic golden color of the champagne comes from the Oak chips.
    • Additionally the astringency from the oak tannins help balance the overly sweet palate of the white-dessert wine.
  • Oak Brewed Coffee:
    • Certain coffee styles especially Burbon flavored coffee, Rye Whiskey Coffee, and nitro coffee uses oak chips to infuse that elusive oak flavor that is hallmark of the premium coffee.

Why Oak Chips?

  • Faster Flavor Extraction:
    • Unlike oak cubes, chips offer quicker flavor extraction (often within a few weeks) as compared with 10-12 years in case of single malt.
    • Achieve the same oak influence without the lengthy aging process.
  • Depending on the recipe it can infuse

THE CHIPS ARE A BIT TOO CHARRED AND WHILE THERE IS AN OAK FLAVOUR AND A GOLDEN COLOUR AFTER JUST 7 DAYS, THERE IS ALSO A TASTE OF THE COAL INSTEAD OF SMOKINESS. I THINK IT MAYBE BECAUSE IT IS TOO CHARRED. I HAD EXPERIMENTED THIS ON MY SAKE WHICH I MADE THE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE WAY WITH KOJI AND YEAST AND NOT THE CHINESE RICE BALL.
