XOakers French Oak Medium Plus Toast
XOakers are the most convenient way to get authentic oak flavour into your beer, spirit or wine. These 1" solid oak spheres are made from high quality genuine French Oak which is seasoned for a minimum of 2 years.
The convenient and uniform shape and weight produces reproducible results when oaking multiple vessels with French Oak. No need to weigh them out, simply count how many spheres you want and drop them in to the opening on your fermenter or barrel to achieve your desired result. Every vessel will be oaked to the same extent.
The level of toasting creates different flavours rather than differences in oak intensity, with darker toasting resulting in more caramelised flavour whereas a light toast results in a much more mild flavour being imparted into the beer, spirit or wine. French Oak imparts a more mild oak and vanilla flavour than American oak.
