I think that the recipe is what they gave me.
IMO the numbers are right because you would loose about 5L in a 60 minute boil. I will bet they scaled it up to do a 5 gallon batch.
The oak is pretty light so you do not need a ton from what I remember. I would think a 1 - 2 oz bag would be fine because you want to oak it to taste not on a time.
