I just finished bottling 6 gallons of Shiraz and have the wine lees and med. toast Hungarian oak cubes set aside to use in an upcoming brew.

Having never done this before I was hoping to find some advise as to what beer styles might work best and any techniques I should consider.

Right now I'm leaning towards making a lambic or sour, neither of which I have brewed before. Probably will make 10 gallons but only use lees and wood on 5 gallons of the batch.

Just made a Saison that I'm going use these cubes on. I'll update this thread on the progress.

I made the 'Shipwreck Saison' by Channel66, but substituted a saison yeast blend provided by Goodwood Brewing (thanks, Joel). The plan is to toss the wood cubes, which are current sitting in lees, into the secondary and wait several months.
