There are several packs of oak in the box/pail. Should I add all of them?
We package our oak in multiples of 30gr and add the amounts we deem appropriate for each varietal. You can choose to add all of the oak provided, none at all, or slightly more. There is no wrong answer. However, the supplied oak quantity will help you obtain a taste as close as possible to the wine varietal. If you prefer a specific wine without oak, you can omit that step and save the oak for another product, or give it to a friend. The toasted oak (dark) will impart a smoky, chocolate/caramel flavor, whereas the natural oak (light) imparts more of a vanilla-type oak taste.
