I've had both of the versions. White Oak twice, Humidor several times more than that. There is no doubt a distinct difference between the taste and aroma of each beer. The Humidor does not add a tropical note at all. It's very woody, but not earthy. Spanish cedar has a very unique flavor. The white oak provides a slight cloudy and almost chalky mouthfeel- not over powering, mind you, just noticeable. The flavor/aroma in the white oak is a papaya/pineapple note. They are very different beers. I definitely prefer the Humidor, but the White Oak is nice as well.

Ok. Thanks for the input. I haven't had either but the Humidor version seems to be pretty highly regarded so I wanted to try it out for my next IPA.

finially got this stuff into a keg this weekend. so far so good. tried a small glass today and it tastes great. I bought some of the real stuff and compared color and hit it spot on. will wait a week or two for a taste test between my brew and the real stuff.

For you guys interested in Spanish Cedar I found some here:

http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=18538

I am going to be making a 5 gallon batch soonish and am going to split it up into 5 batches, one plain, one spanish cedar, one white oak, one walnut, and one maple.

Def post the results, I'm curious to see how you like each batch.

Thank you for the link. Please let me know how long you age it on the cedar. 2 weeks for me didn't seem to bring a lot out of the wood. I thought my wood wasn't very fresh though.

This brew is definitely on my brew calendar for the spring.

This will be my next beer. I've got 5 empty fermenters (shame!).

I just located some spanish cedar locally, so I'll be splitting the batch and leaving one on the cedar for 2 weeks. Prolly leave the other half alone.
