That stands to reason, since stain is a surface coat, vs penetrating, like dye. You need the pores open to give the stain something to grip.

If an oil base, the oil is still going to soak in a bit. More so than a water base, which would dry far quicker.

[E]very stain manufacturer of a stain that penetrates says you need to ensure pores are open. Anything stain that just sits on top hides the aesthetic of the cedar.
