i have 5 gallons of stout ready, I plan on taking 1 gallon for a coffee stout and I think i have all that figured out.
But I also want to do a gallon of oak burbon aged to. I have some American Oak cubes and plan on soaking them in some burbon. For only a gallon how many cubes should I use? I assume only a few? Last oak beer I did it was i think 2 oz for 5 gal. So Any got any inpu for a small gallon for the secondary and how much burbon?

I did a stout with oak powder (used 1 oz for 5 gal) and let that sit, but it wasn't in bourbon. I'd soak them in bourbon for a week or so, then dump the few cubes in. I'd probably go for maybe 5 cubes (depending on size) at most.
