Sugar Maple Infusion Spiral® Barrel Pack
Sugar Maple (Acer saccharin) also known as Rock Maple or Hard Maple, ranges in color from a cream white to gold. It is sourced primarily from the Northeastern United States and Canada. This unique wood contributes subtle notes of maple syrup, with a soft sweetness. Additional hints of vanilla, caramel and Bourbon pecan can also be detected. The Barrel Mill cuts Sugar Maple, Cypress, Spanish Cedar, French and American oak and other wood into a precise spiral shape to maximize surface area in a small package and expose both the parallel and cross grains of the wood. The company then heats, or "toasts" the Spirals in convection ovens to achieve each wood's full potential in flavor and aroma impact.
Two-to-four individual spirals per barrel of beer (31 gallons per barrel) for 3-4 weeks, depending on desired wood character. Nylon netting can be cut to remove individual spirals from pack.
No of spirals per Pack: 6
