Concerning ageing in wood, I tried something that was suggested in
Joy of Homebrewing. That is the addition of sanitized wood chips to the
primary fermenter. It worked very well for me. Of course the results are
very subtle, I mean who would want to drink a glass of beer that tasted like
wood. Anyway, I bought a bag of these chips from Kraus which sells
by mail order. I believe that they are available in different "flavors".
It also seems a lot easier than trying to take care of real wooden kegs.
