Did you soak the chips in anything before adding them ?
I see that the instructions tell you to boil the oak.
No this is where I screwed up. I ditched the directions after brew day. I did not boil the chips. I guess i was figuring since I put a bunch of leaf hops in with it they would be fine. The beer does not taste like it is infected or "lambic". It just taste woody.
I am hoping it will just mellow out over time.
