I'm brewing a Whiskey Barrel Stout recipe (kit) from BB today. It came with a very small bag of whiskey barrel oak chips. (2.5 oz) I'll rack to secondary and add in about 5 days. I'm wondering if this is enough to add a real noticeable flavor. I was thinking of soaking them in whiskey until I add them next weekend. Overkill? I want to notice the whiskey flavor, but I don't want to ruin my beer. I'm not a whiskey drinker, but I brew for the fun of it and try to brew things my friends will like too, not just what I like. I have found every answer to every question I've had about brewing on this forum, so lets have it - to soak, or not to soak - that is the question.
