I guess I made a cardinal mistake when i "ass"umed the chips would float. I'll check it at 7 days and just go from there. I guess another thing is I am calling them chips, but they are a little smaller than sugar cube sized.

I boiled American oak chips for 15 min., strained and then added the tea with priming sugar before bottling a 7.5% IPA.
