how much oak are you all doing for a five gallon batch? And how long? I am brewing a DFH Midas Touch Clone (Malt, Grape juice, honey, and saffron!!!!) and thought some oaking could further blur the lines between beer/wine/mead......

Sweet! and does two weeks in the secondary sound about right? I am not gonna drink this stuff for months, so it should mellow out.....
