from experience, this appears to be too much oak. I would have used 1.5 oz of oak maximum, and used medium toast oak cubes.

2 oz of chips is going to taste like plywood.

Any update on this? I wouldn't think 2 oz is too much. Especially if it was only in the secondary 10 days.

Ive used oak .5oz for a third of a batch 1.7 gal.For an amber this was perfect,for high alcohol i would think a little more like this would be pretty decent. I also did 5 days dryhopped in primary so..
