Default Oaked Sour Apple Ale

Since I started brewing I've made it a tradition to make Midwest Supplies Apple Ale every year around this time. This year I decided to put a new spin on it.

Oaked Sour Apple Ale

12 lbs two row
1 lb honey malt
.5 - 1 lb acidulated malt
1 lb brown sugar

1 oz hellertauer

Safale us-05

4 oz apple extract
1 gallon apple cider
- both added at kegging

2 oz oak chips
- I'll add these like I add my dry hops in the keg in a bag so I can pull them when I have enough oak flavor

In the years past I've used the apple flavoring and cider with success. My questions are:

How much acidulated malt should I use? I've heard a lot of its personal taste, but maybe someone has some advice especially with regards to using it with a beer that will be oaked?

Anyone have experience with using oak chips in a beer like this? How did it turn out and any advice?

Thanks! I'll be brewing this within the next couple of weeks...
