Anyone has tried to pimp this RIS with some Bourbon-Oakchips?

I put two heavy toast oak spirals in mine along with Three ounces of Columbus dry hops. You can barely taste the oak. Might be worth a try.

2oz oak cubes with 16oz bourbon for 2 months. Turned out great!

I am fermenting this now. Had a rough time at the LHBS.
They only had 1lb of black barley so we subbed in .5lb Victory
They had no special B so we used caramel 120.
They had no caramunich so we used caramel 40L, and I used 3.3lb of Munich LME.
They had no pale chocolate, so I used a whole pound of chocolate.

They had the hops, and I used light DME for the rest. I used a US05 yeast cake from a 1.060 rye wheat I bottled 3-4wks ago. I aerated prior to pitching and a couple hours after having airlock activity. Part of this batch I will secondary on oak, bourbon, and cherry puree.

Yeah 1lb of black barley and a half pound of something. It had a 350L, which after looking at victory is not it at all.

Well, I hope not. They said these were close substitutions.

Well, one of two things happened, I got something with a lovibond of 350 and "thought" it was victory, or I got victory and they "thought" it was something else with a lovibond of 350. I guess I'll never really know for sure till I go back and ask what was in that bucket.

I wouldn't sweat it. I had to make some substitutions too and it turned out awesome! You may have created a masterpiece!
