* The oak chips were soaked in 1 cup of Basil Haden bourbon for about a week prior to adding them to the secondary. The chips and bourbon were added together. So I’m not sure if the gravity calculation is an accurate measure of the ABV, since this beer has been fortified. (Something for me to research.)
