Amburana Infusion Spirals - Light Toast

Select an option:

An Amburana spiral gives your homebrewed beer barrel aged flavor! Our premium Amburana Spirals have a Light Toast, and are an easy and economical alternative to aging in barrels.

Oak aging spirals are toasted to enhance the wood's full flavor and aromatic potential. The spiral oak shape maximizes surface area, exposing both parallel and cross grains of the wood, to accelerate extraction time.

Amburana is also known as Brazilian Oak (Amburana Cearensis). This wood is commonly associated with aging the Brazilian sugarcane spirit Cachaça. Amburana tends to reduce the acidity of a beverage, allowing the beer or wine's flavor to shine without being overshadowed.

Amburana wood spirals contribute their own sweet and savory flavors reminiscent of gingerbread and vanilla. Herbal notes, like thyme, can also be detected.

Light Toast is a low-level temperature roast that showcases the natural vanillin compound found in oak.

Amburana Spirals - Light Toast Are Available In 2 Sizes:

  • 1 small oak aging spiral, which treats a 1 gallon batch.  
  • 2 large oak spirals, which treat 5 - 6 gallons (use 1 spiral per 3 gallons).  

Brazilian Oak spirals can be snapped into smaller lengths as needed. Place the oak infusion spiral directly into your beer or wine. The oak flavor in charred oak spirals is fully extracted in 6 weeks. You can remove the oak from the fermenter earlier for milder oak contribution and flavor.

Oak Infusion Spirals should NOT be reused! All of the oak flavor will be extracted after one use, and won't add flavor to future fermentations. 1" diameter Infusion Spirals are intended for use in a fermenter & are not compatible with beer or wine bottles for bottle aging.
