I have also heard of people adding the oak chips at the end of the boil to sterilize and tossing them into the primary. Opinions please.

No I havent, but I have tasted some good ones, I believe they add to secondary, but I dont think it takes much...I love bourbon flavored beers, I plan to make one soon. Good Luck.

Add the oak to the secondary with no additional bourbon. You will get plenty of oak & bourbon character from the 4 oz. of Jack Daniel's chips.

I used medium toast chips and added bourbon - all to the secondary.

Thanks for the advice. I put the chips in the secondary and splashed them with bourbon so they were just damp. They will sit that way until I secondary the beer in 7 days.

all depends on the individual. there is no real measure as what is good or bad just remeber that you want it to show in the beer not over power it. last time i used some in a pumkin beer i used about 2 oz. you have differnt kinds too, theres different toast, types of wood and there there are also flakes that some say work quicker. well good luck

I made one last August with a similar grain bill. I didn't oak it at all, but I did add 400ml of Makers Mark to the secondary. I was going for a strong (most would say overpowering) whiskey flavor and that's what I got. It has mellowed well since then, but it's still not subtle.

Any advice on how long to leave it on the oak?
