I love Oak bourbon barrel IPAs. Oak bourbon barrels do well with stouts and porters too. I have also heard of using Oak rum barrels for stouts and porters. See a pattern? That said, experiment. Smell wood. Boil wood and taste the water. Taste a beer with it and imagine what you'll get.
My question is, how much oak per gallon?
