Im sure it would work, hopefully you could finf-d a stainless steel one so it would be easily sanitized.

I use a plastic one that came with my first wine kit. I like the idea of plastic because I know it won't chip my carboys.

So what I end up doing was I took a Plastic clothes hanger. I Cut it like this



then I made sure it was nice and sanitized, and stuck the straight side into the drill. worked like a charm. it spins off balance in a kinda spinning oval shape of death:D which aided the job.

I did it for about 10mins, switching the spin direction ever couple mins, and I noticed a huge difference in aroma.

Maybe be cheaper now but that spinning off center will eat up drills bushings and you will be buying a new drill.

Just look here:

And you will know why you always should use
stainless steel and nothing else.

The text is in Dutch but the picture tells you what happens if
you put a paint mixer in an acid/sulphite sanitising solution just for a few hours......

So make sure to use only stainless steal.

Thanks for the idea
I will stop by a welding supply and get an uncoated stainless steel TIG rod
comes in 36 inch lengths so I can bend and play with it until I get it balanced
And the cost about a buck :D
