My problem has always been that there has always been an area that would

seen a lot of good work done with it.
Oddly I have resanded the whole section to bare wood and it had
absorption problems again. Resanded again and used another product and
no problem. This has happened to me more than once. Something odd
going on there.
I don't think it's the stain; it's the preparation. I've used the
Minwax stains for 30+ years and they're no more prone to blotching than
any other oil based stain. Many woods need sized before staining;
almost always one will get a better job if do so.
It was the stain. If you will recall I resanded the area again and
reapplied and again and reapplied with another brand with no problem.
What I did not mention is that i resanded a third time to reapply the
Miniwax as the other brand was not a match.
Now if preparation is needed past 180 grip paper, I'll pass.
Now what concerns me is that you mentioned that you get no more
blotching than with any other oil based stain. I don't ever get
blotching. What I was witnessing was spots that the stain would not
stick and would come clean when I wiped off the excess.
Obviously it was the grain in the wood which Miniwax had a problem with.
I ended up having to apply it to the finger nail sized area with a
q-tip and lettigt dry thoroughly before applying varnish.
This was red oak that I was staining BTY.
Sure it isn't a contraction of ya' (yuh) and all?
I doubt people using "ya'll" enunciate "you" frequently.

That's what happens when you misspell it. ;-) Y'all is a contraction
"you" and "all", with the "ou" dropped and replaced by the '''. ;-)
What's the possessive of "it"?
In NY, it's yous.
Bzzzt ... not in Texas. The sentence should properly read in the mother
Gotta keep y'all on ya'lls toes!
The dual singular/plural "y'all", is always followed by the plural
possessive "ya'lls" in a sentence, and the possessive "'s" is an
elision, and optional, matter of personal choice.
Dayum, all y'all have to do is listen to Kinky Friedman.

No you are thinking batch number commonly used when a quantity of
product is divided and sold in individual containers. A new batch of
the product would get a new batch number. If you are buying 3 quarts of
stain you would want to make sure each can was from the same batch and
had the same batch number to insure that they were all identical in
color. if the batch numbers were different it would be wise to mix all
together to insure a uniform color.
Serial numbers typically indicate a single manufactured item that is not
divided and sold in smaller quantities. Manufacturers use serial
numbers mostly for recall and or repair purposes. If there is a problem
with a series of manufactured products they are easier to identify by
