I already fixed it. I'll have to include her in the brewing process next time.

How do you prep your oak chips for secondary? I can't decide whether to boil them in water for 5 min then strain and pitch, or soak them in liquor over night and pitch the whole damn thing into secondary.

Either way,pour the chips & liquid through a hop sock into secondary,tie it off,& drop it in. Rack the beer onto that. The liquid soaks resins out of the wood that help make flavor.
