Oak good idea or not
 
Ok after reading some of Brewtopia threads and using oak, got me thinking, maybe it would be a good addition to the barley wine I have going. What is yalls thoughts on using this in a barley wine. I was thinking like 4 oz. of French oak medium toast. What kind of time line should I fallow to keep the beer on them. I plan on aging the beer for at least a few more months before bottling. maybe soak them in some makers mark before putting them in there not too sure. Lets hear some opinions.


Thanks
Ryan

The right amount of oak in a barley wine should go very well. Jamil recently discussed oak in his podcast and should give you the answers. Just download the link and listen.
