Q: Roughly weight of this item? Thanks!
A: These are just under 1 oz.
Q: how long would you recommend this in the secondary? looking at a gin barrel Saison style
A: This will vary depending on taste preferences, but it will start to impart a nice flavor after 1-2 weeks and can be left longer if preferred
Q: Can these be soaked in bourbon or other spirits before being placed in the carboy?
Q: The description is about flavor, but would this be able to color an imaged spirit?
A: Yes, this product will add color to un-aged spirit. The amount of color will depend on how much you add and how long it soaks.
Q: We are in the moonshine distillation business. I want to take our white corn whiskey after distillation at 180 proof and add your honeycomb white oak and let it age. After we achieve the flavor we want we than will cut the product to 80 proof. Will this product work and if so how many how many gallons can we do with one stick. One run of moonshine yield about 75 gallons of uncut moonshine?
A: You can use the honeycomb exactly as you've described. You'll want 3 inches of honeycomb per gallon, and they have a 6 week extraction time. So you'd need 225 inches (or 45 5-inch sections) for one batch of shine. Given the high proof, you might get away with 2 inches per gallon.
Q: Does this fit into the opening on a glass carboy?
A: Yes it easily fits into glass carboys.
Q: How many gallon that I can steep for this size that you mentioned which is 3/4'' x 3/4" x 5'' long?
A: One honeycomb barrel alternative is enough for 5 gallons of beer.
