CharStix™ Carboy sticks are sized so that one stick is the dosage for 5-6 gallons of wine. Due to careful aging and seasoning of the wood, either French or American, and precise toasting delivers very specific flavors and aromas according to the 4 toast levels we use. The CharStix™ milling gives 60% more surface area compared to WineStix® allowing faster extraction due to more short grain. The milling is 1/16’’ thinner for a denser toasting. Please allow 2 months minimum extraction time to balance the extractions of short and long grain. Removal of the wood early only allows certain extractions of flavors and primarily from the short grain in the CharStix™ milling. The end result is in likeness to a second use Barrel.
These are only available in #2 char made from American Oak.
