Now that I have my first all grain brew under my belt, and plan to stick with it, I wanted to make my own mash paddle. I did a search and only come up with some old posts, nothing more current.
I thought I found that Maple is one of the better hard woods to use. I bought a 1"X6"X8' today at HD for about $23.00.
I figure I can make 2 and sell one. I was planning on making them 4 feet long each, but now am seeing some being sold that are 3 feet. Do you think 4 is too big? Right now I mash in a 10 gallon round cooler.
Next, some people say they treat with food grade oil, some don't. Should they bee treated?
I know there isn't a right or wrong, but I am looking for what works for people that have more experience.
As always, thanks in advance!
