These oak chips are derived from Whisky Barrels, giving your next homebrew the barrel aged flavors of a whisky. Ready to go straight out of the bag, these chips are sanitized by a nitrogen purge allowing you to add to your next batch without worry of infection. It is recommended to start with adding 2 oz. of barrel chips per 5 gallons into secondary fermentation and allowing your batch to age for 5 days before sampling. If a more intense flavor is required, age for an additional 5 days and sample again. Keep in an airtight container to store for future use.*
*Note: If your stored chips dehydrate, re-sanitize by soaking in a similar spirit for 48 hours at a ration of 1 oz. of spirits to 1 oz. of barrel chips.
