Default DIY mash paddle nearly done

just a few spots to sand down and it's done. spot at the top of the blade part is where I MIGHT drill another 1". still deciding if it looks wrong the way it is, or needs the additional hole

not bad, for NEVER having done ANY woodworking in the past 38 years

Credit for the recipe goes to the guys here on HBT. It's a great recipe. With the cultured yeast, it's my favorite brew. I just bought a pound of Centennial just so I have enough to do multiple batches of that.

Oh, and I think it looks great.

don't know what it is, but Michigan seems to crank out some pretty tasty IPAs.

really enjoy Bells' Two-Hearted and New Holland's Mad Hatter and I hear Founders' Centennial is good too

and thanks!

It's because Michigan, in general, is the most awesome place on earth. Especially Ann Arbor.

Ann Arbor is a whore! Go Buckeyes

HAHAHA

Michigan does produce some great beers and the Two Hearted is probably my favorite IPA. Just sucks I cant get it out here on the Left Coast.

Nice job on the paddle BTW.
