I let the beer rest on 2 lbs (3 packs) of crushed Oreos in secondary for about 3 days. When I racked it to the keg, a strong acetone smell came from the carboy. After carbing, however, the beer tasted great with no perceivable solvent taste.

Even though it tasted good, I would avoid using Oreos for my next batch and instead opt for cocoa nibs and vanilla beans.
