Using Oak Cubes

<< < (2/3) > >>

reverseapachemaster:
These days you find every style is getting oaked. I'm just waiting for oak aged malt liquor.

bluesman:
I like the darker beers myself. (RIS, Baltic Porter, etc...) but I also think Belgians work well with some oaking as it adds more complexity to the beer. As was said, you can oak just about any beer style these days. Seems to have become more and more popular by pro-breweries as well. Perhaps us homebrewers have more and more influence on the pro-brewers. :)

jeffy:
I put a white oak spiral in an American IPA recently that turned out great.  It really accented the citrusy hops.

davidgzach:
I've oaked my IPA's in the past.  I've also over-oaked.  Not very tasty.....

Start light, IMHO.

Must be careful with soak time.  I have over-oaked as well.
