Storing Inoculated Oak Chips
I have a blueberry lambic that I just bottled that I want to save the oak chips from because it turned out great. Any suggestions on how to store these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I dried mine out and stored them in a plastic baggie. Just make sure they are thoroughly dried or they will mold.

I am keeping my funked up oak spirals in a 20 oz jar with dregs from most funky beers beers I drink and an occasional dose of fresh wort.

TimC> So do you dump out the fermented beer to make room for fresh wort or are you just kind of stepping it up?

I pour out enough to make space for the fresh wort. My goal is to maintain an active and biologically diverse medium in which to store my "infected" oak. Seems to have worked so far.

I keep mine in a loosely capped 1 qt mason jar and feed them fresh PBR every month or two. The oak gets a quick rinse with hot water at every feeding, or when recovered from a fermenter. They usually form a thick white pellicle within a week of feeding.

Drank a Rodenbach Grand Cru last night and poured the dregs into the mason jar. Thanks for all the help guys.
