This 36 maple mash paddle is perfect for the all grain beer brewer. My efficiency with steeping grains has really improved since I started using this paddle. Better efficiency = better beer! This paddle allows you to mix up the grains and breakup dry patches so you get every last bit of sugar in the wort. This mash paddle is handmade out of 100% maple and is sanded smooth to the touch. It measures 36 long and the widest part is approximately 3 ? wide. The wood is all natural and no chemicals or finishing products have been used. Please remember that no two pieces of wood are the same so wood grain and wood color may differ from photos shown.
