Q: I have some banana and I have some pear vinegar that is ready to bottle and age.
Would your oak chips be the proper chips tp buy. How do use them? Just place them in a small jar and let the contents age for a few weeks (28) weeks and then bottle the vinegar for gift giving in Christmas 2020. I have never age vinegar before so any help would be appreciated.
A: Adding the chips to the vinegar and letting age for at least one week to impart to oak flavor would be best. You can pull small samples of the vinegar to taste test the flavor from the oak and leave in longer if needed for a stronger flavor profile
Q: How many grams of oak chips are present in 1 packet
Q: Are these chips white oak or red oak?
A: The manufacturer does not list the oak source but we believe they are white oak
Q: can these be used in small oak barrel to age brandy?
A: Yes, These could be added to an oak barrel if preferred, but the oak barrel itself should provide enough surface area contact to impart a nice oak flavor on its own
Q: We have 3 liter oak barrels that have already been used for aging brandy several times and each time takes longer. Can these be added to the 3L barrels?
A: Yes, These can be added into the barrel so long as the opening is larger enough to fit the chips
