Default Help me build my 2013 Christmas RIS

The week between Christmas and New Years I will brew my Christmas beer for 2013. I would be interested in feedback and suggestions. The base recipe I have brewed before and it turned out very good. For this addition I added the Munich, oats, chocolate wheat and the flaked wheat. Also I will oak and bourbon this beer. I have thought about splitting the batch and adding oak to one and bourbon to the other.

I plan a 4 week primary with a six month secondary and add the bourbon and the oak one week prior to bottle.

Question on the bourbon. How much should I add for a 5 gallon batch? Should i soak the oak in the bourbon and add both? Or just the soaked oak?

Oh and the batch sparge should be 2 sparges (not sure why I can't beersmith to add a second sparge)
