Default Cedar??

It seems like nobody on here has ever put food-grade cedar chunks (like the planks used for salmon) in their beer.

Is there a darn good reason?

Would you have to toast the cedar first? What is the point of toasting, anyway?

Cigar City in Florida makes a couple cedar aged beers, but they use Spanish cedar (which is most noted for its use in cigar boxes... get it). I had their Humidor Series IPA, but didn't care for the wood character though.

No idea on amounts/times etc... good luck and if you do it remember to post your results.
