Honeycomb Barrel Alternative
« on: October 19, 2012, 04:04:02 AM »
Anybody tried this product yet?

I'm going to soak a few different varieties in vodka for awhile and see how the flavors develop.  I'll probably add a few ounces to a batch of beer at some point.

From left to right: red oak, white ash and hickory.

There was a great artical about these in the last Zymurgy issue. It told how the different woods worked in the same beer and how each had very different results. From the artical white oak and white ash will be in my supply they seemed to help or change a beer.
