Reader Tip: Deal on 2 Ove Gloves – Minding Yeast Starters & Brew Day

Thanks to HBF Reader CJ for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

ove gloveTanga has a two pack of ‘Ove Gloves on sale for $11.99.  Shipping is free.  That figures to $6 each.

Compare: Search hot surface handler at Amazon

I use an Ove Glove when I’m making yeast starters in an Erlenmeyer Flask.  It’s really handy (pun intended) to swirl around the flask or to quickly remove to keep the flask from boiling over.  No reaching for a pot holder because I already have the Ove Glove on.

These are also handy on brew day for handling hot (but not wet) ball valves and such.

These are not waterproof. Along those lines, I wouldn’t suggest that you stick your hand in hot wort with one of these on. Or, without one of these on for that matter. I guess the take away here is… don’t stick your hand in hot wort. 🙂
