oak chip question
« on: October 07, 2006, 10:02:52 AM »
 I was thinking of aging my next batch (porter) on some oak chips that I've been soaking in Wild Turkey.
 Any ideas on how long I should leave it.

The last time I did wood chips I went for 2 weeks.

Just like dry hoping. 

It should be great ;D

   Slight change of plans. I am going to increase the size of this batch and age half on oak chips and half with a vanilla bean or two.

I used 1 oz.

It is better to start with small amounts and taylor it to your tast.
