Default Bourbon County Stout clone attempt

I thought i'd put this here.

Goose Island lists their ingredients on the website, I assumed that it's in order of greatest to least amounts, from left to right. I put it in BeerSmith and played around and here is what I came up with. I brewed this on sunday. To do an all grain version, just up the 2-row to 20lbs and drop the 11lbs of extract. I didn't think 28lbs of grain would work in my 10gal rubbermaid cooler. It's bubbling away right now. My hydrometers scale only goes to 1090, so I don't have an accurate OG. I'm guessing just from where it was on it that it was around 1120. Super sweet, sticky and syrupy. As expected.

I hope it comes out better than I'm expecting, but that sounds waay too sweet. Nearly 25% of your bill is mostly unfermentable and you mashed high. I don't think this gets <1.05 as is.

How are you going to get your bourbon flavor?

I'm hoping it gets down around 1035-1040. BCBS is super sweet. I have 4 oz of oak chips soaking in makers and vanilla beans that I'll let it age on for awhile.

Right now I have 4oz of oak chips soaking in Makers Mark. My plan is to strain those, and to let it sit on the chips in secondary for a month, and see how it is. I did a stout a few months ago where a 1/2 pint of makers was just dumped in during secondary, and there wasn't much bourbon coming through. This one needs to be pretty over the top.

I'm not too familiar with oaking beers, but 4oz of chips sounds like a ****load to me.
