Default oak powder

I am making a pinot noir today and the kit came with oak powder. It says to stir it in vigorously. I am stirring but the oak powder is still floating on top. Is this normal? Thanks!

It will sink when it absorbs enough liquid.

Stir every day until that happens.

Speaking of oak which is better because my LHBS has a choice of Oak Chips or Oak-a-Vin which is described as "Very high quality natural oak extract in liquid form. Natural oak extract of very high quality originating from the French limousin. Gives the same effect in a few days as storing in oak barrels for several years!"
So has enyone ever used this stuff or any other oak extract?
