mash paddle/stir paddle
« on: November 30, 2009, 08:54:25 AM »
I need to buy/make a mash paddle that i also could stir my bk with.

The $3 spoon isn't getting it done. 

I don't want a 6' one, more like 3'

Anyone make these?  What type of wood?

Check northern Brewer:

or Stainless Steel Mash Paddle

http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/stainless-steel-mash-paddle.html

Both are 30" long or so they say.

I have the doweled mash paddle that works great. Just be careful with it if your using a braid. I got the braid caught in it once and had to replace it.

I made one like Tubercle's and love it!  The nice thing about a solid oak paddle is, you don't have to worry about someone sneaking up and trying to steal your brew!   ;D
