Wood aging - Reuse cubes afterwards?
I'm about to age an old ale on some oak cubes and was wondering if I could reuse the cubes when I'm through. If so, how should I store them?
Side question, if I were to soak the cubes in wine or some liquor, what would be appropriate for an old ale?
This is what BYO says about soaking cubes, but indent hink any of the mentioned are close to old ales.
Advanced: If you want yeast to survive, store them in distilled H2O. Can help obtain a "house" flavor after a number of uses.
Standard: store them in whiskey or vodka. EtoH will kill most bacteria and yeasts so contamination becomes a lesser concern.
