Thanks for the suggestions. I have pieces of JD oak barrels that I bought for a bourbon barrel stout. Would this work?

Wonderfully. However, if they were expensive, LHBS probably has some for cheaper. 1.00 per pack here, and one pack is good for a 6 gallon batch.

The finer flavored of JD cured oak might not come through with the cinnamon. Who knows?

If I may ask, what was your original recipe?

It should be fine but wound just buy oak from LHBS. They have it b/c I guess they use it for wine. I use it to flavor neutral spirits and use about 10 cubes per gallon of spirits and then let it sit for 1 month or so. Try it and if you don't get enough flavor, then add more and repeat.

I wish I had a LBHS, the closest is 1.5 hours away so I usually order a bunch of supplies online once in a while. That's why I was trying to make due with what I have lying around.
