Mash Paddle - Unbelievably generous gift!
So, The mail lady calls me and mumbles something. Never quite sure what she says, but I do know it means she has a package down at the mail box and I can either drive down 2 miles to pick it up, or else I'll have to drive all the way to town to get it tomorrow. I jump in the truck and lead foot it on down and she hands me this long narrow box.
I'm liking the way this is shaping up so I lead foot it even faster on the way back home.
Now you have to understand, I've been trading PM's back and forth with Ryan Mooney a bit lately about sausage making and brewing. One of the beers we had at BW was my attempt to make a 'blonde' ale that Ryan had passed my way.
So I open the box and find this, a wooden box all nicely crated up.
Well, This is getting might interesting I say to myself. I go and grab a little pry bar and open up the crate.
And look whats here! A beautifully hand carved mash paddle! Since I've been brewing one of the items I've been most in need of is a good mash paddle.
My old one I made to thin and it comes dangerously close to breaking each time I use it.
This one is really too nice looking to use, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I think a fine coating of wort might be just the ticket to finish this off!
Ryan, I don't know what to say. This is just incredible! I'm actually just blown away by this. If I had any brewing friends around I'm quite sure they would be very, very jealous!
Thank you very, very much!
