Default Spoon

Just thought of something In my first mash attempt my plastic brewing spoon snaped in half so I seem to be in the market for one. Are those plastic paddles better for mashing for this reason? I've seen wooden ones as well. What do you guys use?

12 inch stainless steel spoon with slots in it. Works just fine for stirring mash. Got it at a cooking specialty store in the mall. I'm sure even Wal-Mart would have a similar product.

I've been wanting one of those wooden msh rakes, but I can't pull the trigger for some reason.

I checked out the plastic ones at my HBS and it looks way too flimsy.

Someone on here had a father-in-law or a father make one for him. It looked sweet!

I saw one in a catalog but it did not look any more stronger then the one I snapped in two. What did you use for the new brew setup Dude?

Take a look at these:

There are several lengths to choose from. I have something similar to this that I use for both mashing and boil kettle stirring. It will certainly be something that will last basically forever.

Prosit!

I use the wooden mash rake. It is great! I wouldn't buy one for myself originally but a friend gave it to me for my birthday. I have used it several times and if it gets broken or gets damaged I will go buy another.

I may have to look into the Stainless paddles though
