  • Finishing: Add directly to the brite beer tank to compliment beer flavor and aroma during storage
  • Barrel Supplementation: Add directly to neutral barrels to renew oak flavors and aroma
    • Dose Rate Range: 70-300 g/bbl (for oak flavors and aromas that range from subtle background notes to
      bold oak character as determined to be optimal for that particular beer)
  • Blending Beer: Dose the oak at a high rate directly into a smaller volume of beer to make a concentrated blending beer for precise blending back into larger finished brews at the brite beer tank or barrels
