68% (temp adjusted) ABV after 18 hours aerating. Since there would be some wood sugars and tannins which should have a higher SG than water it may be a couple % higher I guess. Starting to get a bit of light wood color (see attached). Slight rough vanilla flavor, no char or wood that I can pick up, smoother than white dog post mixing (or perhaps that's the chilling). No apparent spirit loss.

Was able to get a peak inside and confirm that the bubbling is quite vigorous (with the carbonation cap sitting ajar).

2w review.

Very smooth to drink. Easy to drink @ 47% ABV. Not as much tannin extraction as I expected, perhaps not enough wood. Minimal losses.

Ended up pressuring the keg (1-2PSI) slightly to ensure the lid stayed sealed. Did the entire process except a couple days where I needed the fridge space in the fridge.

Time to bottle :)
