So I'm stocking up my arsenal of wood for my AQ. So far I have red oak, hickory, apple, pear, cherry,and lilac. My question is does different woods produce different color ash? I have used all of them except lilac, has to dry out a few more months, and all the ash except for the oak ends up white and powdery. The oak was black, but completely burnt and powdery. Can you tell if the wood is not dry enough by the color or do some woods produce different colors?
Thanks for any info.
