In my case, the chips spread out evenly in a rectangle Pyrex dish and 140ml just covered.I
would think that even if they were spread out, the bourbon would still cover the same amount. I
just rotated ...

That's basically the conclusion I came to. I think I'm going to run a bunch of 1 gallon / 1
pound test steeps to get some real data. The way it is now, some recipe building software could
be off by up...

Well the beer had finished fermenting and aging and is just about ready to keg. I decided that
I would add the bourbon-soaked oak chips to the keg rather than adding during fermentation. I

(unless you g...
