So, can you give us some more details? Your attenuation is terrible and there is most certainly a problem. I would advise against putting that beer in bottles.

Would anyone else be interested in their specialty oak options? If I find enough people to split a bag up with, I could order it and divide it up. I really don't need 40lbs of chips or cubes all by myself.
So, what's the point? On a small scale, would you ever make back the money that it cost? It won't make better beer. It sounds like it might actually make worse beer... super high efficiency can come at the expense of flavor (which is not a problem for the large batch macro lager producers).
Sounds like it really won't benefit the small pro-brewer. At least from a cost savings standpoint.
But isn't this the Pro Brewing area?
There's good and bad mead. From what I've learned it is at least if not more as complicated to make excellent mead as beer.
