    Hello!
    My friend made my a Wooden Mash Paddle, and before use it I think it need to be treated with some oil (maybe).
    Do you know what must I use for it?

    Thanks!

    THE FOOTER IS BLOCKING EVERYTHING AGAIN!

    WELL, HERE IS A PLACE I CAN POST THIS TO... CAN'T GET ACCESS TO SUBMIT BUTTON IN MOST OTHER PLACES... CAN'T SEE THE BOTTOM HALF OF THE FORUM. HAD TO GET CLEVER TO SENT A MESSAGE VIA THE CONTACT LINK...

    THE FOOTER HAS EVERYTHING SCREWED UP AGAIN! IT'S WORSE THAN LAST TIME. I USE OPERA. I CLEARED CACHE AND COOKIES AND IT COMES RIGHT BACK. I ALSO TRIED EXPLORER AND FIREFOX, SAME ISSUES. IT'S BLOCKING OUT MOST FORUM FEATURES AND BLOCKING OUT BIG CHUNKS OF MY RECIPES, MY BREW SESSIONS, ETC. TOO.

    GET IF FIXED. PLEASE! AND KEEP IT FIXED. I GET THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO MAKE MONEY ON ADS, BUT FOR CRIPES SAKE, DON'T BE SLOPPY ABOUT IT. YOU'RE LOSING CUSTOMERS. I REALLY REALLY LIKE USING THIS SITE AND AM HAPPY TO PAY FOR THE SERVICE, BUT I'M ABOUT TO BE DONE WITH IT.

    ---------- YES, WRONG PLACE TO POST THIS, BUT ONLY PLACE I CAN SEE THE SUBMIT BUTTON RIGHT NOW, SO HERE IS WHERE IT GOES!

    Sure? But the paddle will be contaminated... or not?

    If you let it dry long enough, any varnish is food-safe. I'd recommend acrylic sealer/varnish - it's water-based and won't contaminate your beers - I coated my measuring stick with it and no problem. If you drink out of plastic cups, you have just as much chance of contamination as you have with a polymer varnish.

    My mash paddle is bare wood. Rinse it before you use it, and wash it when your done. Anything that it touches will be boiled, so no worries.

    I wouldn't want any varnish coming off in my wort. :shock:
    Plain wood is fine.
