Just bottled my batch this past weekend. Took a taste of the beer when I bottled, and it tastes great! The oak and hops really come through. But I soaked the oak chips in scotch and the scotch flavor isn't there. I'm looking forward to labeling and drinking this batch in a couple weeks.

1 oz Zythos 0 min.

This beer fermented into a monster 11.2% and still going. I ended up adding 1# clear candi sugar. The sample definitely has the rye bite which I am undecided on at the moment. Definitely needs aging.

Would it be so bad to add the wood chips to the keg and carb up... taste test for a few weeks or so, then remove the chips?...

I'm also thinking that you could hang the chips from the lid of the keg so that once you pull a few pints out its not sitting in the beer anymore?

I ask because i have a kickass christmas ale i made that has been aging now a month (after fermentation stopped) and I want to add a bit oak flavor to it but not enough to take away from the work its done on its own.

That would work fine. A 1 gallon paint strainer bag works great.

I'm not kegging this beer so I'll be oaking during the secondary fermentation. Based on the durations of the dry hopping and the oak aging I am thinking that I could transfer to a secondary and add the oak and then 18 days later add the hops for dry hopping. Does this seem like a reasonable way to do it or would you recommend the dry hopping and the oaking be done sequentially?

Question for everyone. There’s a brewery in Richmond Va that uses poplar wood to age their IPA and it’s great. Has anyone here, ever used poplar?
