I’m considering oaking my Chocolate Imperial Stout. I have 6 oz. of Light toast American White Oak. Do you think the chocolate and oak flavors would be OK together? The beer is finished, after 3 weeks in the primary, 9% ABV, I probably should rack it before oaking for a couple weeks, right? I'm thinking about toasting the oak to about a medium level before using it, which would sanitize it, too. Thanks, see you all in Philly in June.
