Dumb question. Do I add the oak chips to the secondary for the full 45 days or just 21?


Thanks

I brewed this beer using Maker's Mark. It is unbelievable. Unlike most winter and seasonal beers you don't have the annoying spice. This beer is so good that I may brew it a few more times before spring. This is being added to my yearly schedule.
