Heat Resistant Glove [Minding Yeast Starters & Brew Day] – $9.03


G & F Heat Resistant Oven Glove, Medium Size by G & F

I use a similar type of 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.  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. :)

8/26/16 2 PM Central: This is selling for $9.03.  Shipping is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.  See Recent Amazon Finds and our Amazon Fillers Resource Page to help you put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.
