Default Barleywine with oak chips

Okay, be okay to leave the chips in until I keg, I'm guessing, maybe even into the keg with them?

I would taste the brew every few days to determine how much of the bourbon taste your palate can handle and go from there. Once you get to that limit, go ahead and package without the chips. If you include the chips with the bourbon, you will continue to extract more bourbon flavor and it will get too intense.

I've got a barleywine on 2 oz of bourbon soaked chips in secondary and I plan to leave it be for at least 3 months before going to keg for more aging.

I understand what you are saying, but don't want to get into it too many times. I am rather thrilled about the fact that I have concocted such a brew on my second ever brewing episode. I would hate to risk an infection now. Some friends and I each took a 2-3 ounce sample today, and it is good!

I take it you will leave the chips out of the keg?
