What about adding some dark oak chips to this brew?

I would avoid the oak chips. You might have a nice effect by adding some 120L in place of the D2.

I was hoping OP would show up. I haven't tasted this yet, but envision a fairly sweet beer (raspberry, chocolate, D2, etc.) Oak would seem to go in a very different direction.

I feel like a noob homebrewer again as the waiting is killing me for this one beer, and I have 35+ gallons of homebrew lying around.

Well I just transfered to secondary yesterday. I ended up losing about 3/4 gal. due to the raspberry puree. Not a big deal. I did pull a sample for a premature taste before racking. The raspberry was present but not overwhelming. This is going to be a tasty beer.

Your LHBS or any online store. It's a white powder.

Were you guys sure to add a significant amount of yeast (add more wort to your liquid starter several times to increase the cell count) or did you find that one package worth was sufficient?

McBrewski,

I just used a Wyeast smack pack with no starter. Everything turn out fine. But a starter would never hurt.

Bonneville,

I got one more week left in the bottle before I'm going to the glass. I think around new years would be a great time to compare notes.

I'm bottling this weekend. Went extra-long in the primary due to a nasty illness. 3 weeks in secondary, and 3 weeks in bottle. Ready for New Year's. Looking forward to my bottling taste this weekend.
