well, i can't prove this, but i left an 11% dipa in an oak barrel for six weeks and it turned out fantastic.  i'm waiting for it to carb up right now......  forgot to adjust co2 for temp in force carbing the keg and the bottles are less than two weeks from capping.....

your beer sounds fantastic.

It's inspired me to brew an Oak IIPA...IMO you  can't go wrong with Amarillo Hops!  The Munich is an interesting grain to use, should be great!  I just brewed an Imperial Bourbon Oak Porter and boiled the chips for 10 minutes to sanitize...they're easy to work with. Cheers!
mmmm....beer
