While I have made at least two dozen full-sized “traditional” Mash Paddles in the past, I never made one for myself until now.
My normal sized mash paddles are for homebrewers that brew five to six gallons of beer at a time and measure around 45 inches long. I limit myself to 4 gallons at the max, so I don’t need such a big paddle.
I also wanted something “original” – I think this qualifies. ;-)
It measures only 24 inches long by five inches at it’s widest.
Made from solid, one inch thick walnut, it’s certainly strong enough to bust up any clumps of grain during my brewing sessions.
Treated only with food-grade mineral oil.
Don’t ask me what shape it is because I have no idea – my wife thinks it looks like a whale skeleton.
