So I've read a bunch about oak chips and bourbon, but I got to thinking, bourbon barrels are charred on the inside. Wouldn't it be more realistic to char the oak chips? There has to be some way to recreate this without leaving a burnt flavor. Anyone have any input?

Pre-charred oak chips from an authentic Jack Daniels barrell.

Like that other person said, part of those aren't charred, and in a real barrel the beer would only be touching the charred parts.

Also, Jack Daniels isn't bourbon
