Data suggest that it has a negligible effect. Maybe if you were going to be really extreme and
mash at 0.25 qts/lb vs. 10 qts/lb it may turn out to be significant, but neither of those are

I run a WV-based nanobrewery after all and we've never used pure o2 and it works out just fine

Its better to use a 5 gallon carboy for the secondary for a 5 gallon batch, it will minimize
the head space and exposure to oxygen. A lot of the pellicle photos are in buckets or 6 gallon

Chinook has a pretty high cohumulone level, which will contribute astringency in the
bitterness. Try something cleaner for bittering, like warrior.
