      Personally, I will never use oak barrels.  Just toss in some dried oak sticks into a gallon or quart glass container.  If I remember, it only takes a gallon 2 months verses 2 year in a large barrel to finish.  I wonder if you leave the oak in the glass container for 2 years that it might taste like a 12 year old bourbon?  Something to think about for future experiments.

      If patience is an issue, then smaller barrels might be a solution. They can cut down the aging time considerably.
