    Hey.... Possibly a silly question that may already have been answered elsewhere..

    I've recently drunk/drank a number of pale ales that have been aged in sherry/whisky/Jack Daniels casks - mostly by Innes & Gunn.

    I'm also aware that I can buy wood for the barbecue that is supposedly old bourbon cask wood that's designed to impart a smoky bourbon flavour to the food when it's cooked.

    Would it be feasible to drop some of these wood chips into a batch of beer as it brews, to try and replicate that flavour, or is there a better way to achieve it...

    Many thanks in advance!

    How about normal oak chips and then add bourbon to taste?

    There's a danger it would end up as a glass of bourbon!

    Plus I tend to overthink things, and missed this idea completely.......
