plywood lid NEARBY the booze i.e. several feet away at least! And it
was a hypothetical question, I was just wondering if alcohol vapour
would potentially extract any of the glues in the wood. From the few
intelligent replies I've gotten the answer is no, but I'm still going

Pity. Actually most of the people on the forum are very
reasonable, most of the time!
A pity, too, because I had an idea, a compromise, using both
suggestions, wood and stainless, that would have cost comparatively
little. Say you made a (say) wooden lid, and lined it (inside only)
with quite thin stainless?
The wood gives the lid its shape and strength, and the stainless
let's see, what does it give? It is unaffected by, and does not
affect, the contents of the vessel; and it is easy to effectively
clean and sanitize. I guess that is pretty well it.
I have seen the same technique used in 44 gallon drums (55 to you
Americans, your gallons are small); I bought a stainless drum from a
winery, I think it had been used for brandy; and I also bought from
them a stainless steel lined drum.
So, if you're still listening, Mike, maybe this idea will be
useful, and I hope you change your mind and stay.
