Barrel Mill Brand Infusion Spirals feature tight grain sourced from Missouri forests. This wood is void of sapwood, bark and knots and air dried for 24 months.
Heavy Toast adds pronounced caramelized wood, with notes of smoke and toasted bread.
Spirals allow winemakers to impart terrific oak flavor and aroma to wines aged in glass carboys, plastic buckets, or steel tanks. Use a single variety or create your own custom blend of different toasts and woods.
Suggested dose is 1 spiral per three gallons. Spirals can be snapped into smaller portions to achieve desired flavor intensity; can be added during fermentation or aging. Oak flavor is fully extracted in 6 weeks. Remove sooner for milder results.
