General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Using Oak Cubes

I think I will add French cubes to the secondary for about 10 days as suggested. Thank you all for the replies.

Thank you. You all have given me some good ideas. I brewed Denny's Old Stoner barley wine about 10 months ago and it is still sitting in the secondary. I am thinking about adding some french oak cubes to it for about a month before bottling. Would that be too long on the oak? Will using oak in this beer ruin it? What does everyone think?

This may be a dumb question but what styles of beer lend them self best to sitting in a secondary with french oak cubes?

Second Pull Chilled and Carbonated, Clear and red, tart and cherry
Good stuff my friends.... More like a Sour cherry soft drink than a 9% AVB Beer. Sneaky! ;D

For some reason, difficult to photograph. I will try again on a sunny day.

Oh that looks awesome! I need to try my hand at making a sour beer.

Wow Keith. This is awesome. I have been out of touch with the brewing world lately so I am just now hearing about your brewery. Congrats again man.

I used 1/2 teaspoon of the seeds (before crushing) in a Saison one time and I thought it was overpowering but ymmv.

Very nice pictures Dave. I will have to keep an eye out for their strong ale fest. I would like to make it to that one.

Good luck Weaz! Hope it works out for you.

Hey Wes,
Why not just go over to New Belgium and smooze some employees...
get em drunk and use subversive tactics... ;)
Take a brewery tour and ask em...what is in those sacks etc?

Dave, I just might have to give that a try  :P

Here is a link to a clone that is supposed to be very close (haven't brewed it myself).

I have brewed "Flat A## Tired" several times from this link and it is almost spot on to the real thing! Also on a side note, I emailed New Belgium once asking them about their Fat Tire yeast, malts etc and this is part of their reply:

Matty Smooth: "I can't totally give you the recipe, but I can tell you you're on the right track with Biscuit, Munich and Victory malts. We also use Carapils and a Caramel malt, along with the 2-row. Most clean fermenting ale yeasts should work out just fine for you; I think White Labs' California Ale would be a good choice, or their European Ale if you want a bit more malt flavor. Ferment a little bit on the warmer side of the temperature profile for low level ester formation and fast vicinial diketone uptake."

Hope you find some of this info useful.

I've already ruined 2 hobbies I loved (music and computers) by turning them into careers.  All I want out of homebrewing is to make great beer and enjoy it with great friends.

I totally agree. Once it becomes work the fun is no longer there.
