Think Stave Segments, evolved. The BeerStix Domininos are 1 1/2" square segments of oak, milled to give you quick extraction, and full flavor. While similar to conventional stave segments, you will see similar results in a much shorter timeframe, making these much more suitable for beer. This is a 490 g (1 lb) bag of French Oak Domininos, Toasted Medium Plus and sized to oak 100 gallons of Beer. This is the quickest turnaround on a Beer Stix product. At one month extraction, you'll see a quick integration of rich oak character due to the high surface area of these domininos in contact with your beer.
Thanks to careful selection of oak, followed by precise aging and seasoning, and exact toasting, these Domininos will provide a round and rich oak character specific to the toast level and origin. French Oak toasted to a Medium + with the beerstix milling will give your beer toasted roasty aromas reminiscent of coffee, along with some caramel, and a subtle sweetness that gets the whole palate. Different beer styles will accentuate or mask different flavors from the oak, so expect some variation!
Please Note - Allow 1 month minimum extraction time to balance the extraction of short and long grain from the Stix. Removal of the wood early only allows certain extractions of flavors and primarily from the short grain in the BeerStix® milling. WineStix
