I hear you on the hop oil. Only stuff I've seen is from health supplement places. Any idea there? I've never seen it in person, much less had experience with it. It's not too descript on the internet.
I don't think I'll try distilling my own hop oils.
What are you planning for oak? I've got an idea, just not sure what I'll do. I'm brewing a burton this week to throw on the yeast cake from this, so I figure I need to figure that out pretty quick. Pretty much just bumped the ingredients up to get about 1.090 or so (darker crystal to get a more ruby red). Same hops at 90 and 60, bumped up an oz on 30 and 0.
