MopanI Wood is it ready or not?

Jonmdj

Ok so I got some MopanI wood from my LFS, I have left it in a bucket overnight and have noticed no leeching of tannins into the water this morning. Is it ready to go or should I continue to soak it?

Welcome to fishlore :)

It hasnt leeched any tannins because it hasnt been promoted too.

If you can fill your sink with boiling hot water or if the wood is small enough put inot a pot and boil for a few hours, the heat allows the tannins to leech much faster then in a cool bucket, bucket method will take weeks, boiling only a few hours at most.

Best of luck :)
