Borgmc1, you are indeed an artist. When I was researching food safe finishes for my mugs I saw a food safe epoxy on the net but it was a heat activated product and I didn’t have any experience with that type of epoxy. What epoxy do you use on your mugs and steins?

Luv2learn,
Thanks for the artist comment.
I’m using a product call Brewcoat It is designed to line the inside of beer vats. It is FDA approved for potable water, and is food safe. You can find info about it on the web at http://www.sscoatings.net/brewcoat.htm
I purchased a gallon kit over a year ago and have made many mugs and still have more than half left. But I mix it up 1 tablespoon at a time.

There is one really nice thing about the Brewcoat. It is not hazardous material so you dont have to pay an arm and leg to ship it. I ordered one product that needed to be heated to set and the shipping was more than the product. Not doing that again. not to mention that the smell of hot epoxy in the house was almost more than I could stand (heated it in the kitchen stove).

Borgmc1,
Thanks for the brewcoat link. I am doing some experimenting building barrel stave style mugs. I was using salad bowel finish on them but I think I will give Brewcoat a try. I think you should do a blog on one of your mug or stein creations :).
