It is time for me to take the plunge into AG and understanding recipe formulation etc. I recently picked up a 25 litre Birko so I am going give BIAB a go.

I have been doing a lot of "using the F**k'n search engine" even done a bit of snooping on the interweb thingy.

Here is what I have come up with as a clone of a very nice Innis & Gunn beer i tried recently.

What do you think of the above recipe? any suggestions for improvement?
I have read this thread about Oak chips and it seems i can either soak the chips in bourbon/rum/whiskey or I can buy the pre flavoured oak chips.

is there a view one which is the best way to use the chips?

Looking forward to you feedback...

Just put my Smokin' Gun clone in the keg this evening.... a mate already brewed his version and it was very close only a tiny bit darker. Will get the recipe tomorrow.

If you plan on soaking the chips I would choose bourbon as i've heard Innis and Gun is matured in old oak bourbon barrels. Its such a exceptionally nice beer.
