White Wood?
« on: January 30, 2011, 11:16:49 AM »
Very close to laying down my first aged cheeses.  I haven't seen anything on this, but plan to use white wood, rough-hewn, for my shelving.  I believe it's any one of pine or spruce species.  Before committing to it -thoughts? 

Something about spruce appeals, from days making Koduõlu (beer, typically lautered through juniper bows and runoff through hollowed spruce logs - known in Finland as sahti) in the style of Saarema, Estonia, in homage to my wife's grandad, a great son of Estonia.  (Our pup is named "Olu."  "Beer."  'nuff said).  That said, want a neutral shelving, so not sure if for some reason pine or spruce would lend an undesired resinous character (would have thought so, but see so many caves with pine).

Spruce would be great, pine would do too.
