Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves – $3.99

Sliced Bourbon Barrel Staves 2 ct.

Used Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Staves via Adventures in Homebrewing.

Used whiskey barrels are popular… really popular.  5 and 10 gallon barrels usually sell out quickly when they become available.  They are also typically relatively expensive.  These are a great way to get some of the barrel experience without the cost and space required for a barrel.

from AIH…”These sliced staves do vary in size. They are anywhere from 1/2”- 1″ wide, 1/8″-1/4″ thick and 8-13″ in length. Please keep this in mind when purchasing. Many commercial chips have allowed moisture (bourbon) to dry up. This is not the case with these sliced staves. These staves have been processed from authentic Kentucky bourbon barrels.”

As of this posting, these are available for $3.99.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

2 Pack Medium Plus Toast American Oak BeerStix – $6.49

About, from MoreBeer: “BeerStix Carboy Sticks are one of the simplest and easiest forms of oak to use in beermaking. Simply add one stick per 5 – 6.5 gallons, and enjoy the results a couple months later. When it comes to removing the stick, there’s no fumbling around with cubes trying to get them through the neck of a carboy. These are made with a hole at the top so you can lift the Beer Stix out with fishing line when done. The Carboy Beer Stix are an awesome addition to the homebrewers aresenal. Use them to take a recipe to a fun and delicious next level. Already make an amazing stout, or brown? These are prime candidates to age with some oak, and enjoy the rich results!

American Oak toasted to a Medium + with the beerstix milling will give you flavors and aromas of roasted coffee, light chocolate and honey, as well as some spice notes and hints of leather. Every beer will accentuate, or mask different flavors from the oak, so expect some variation between beers! The Beerstix miling gives 60% more surface area compared to the Winestix, speeding up the extraction process, and getting you a beer that has a rich oak character, in less time. The Beer Stix are also milled thinner than the WineStix, allowing for denser toasting.”
