‘Ove Glove – for Minding Yeast Starters

The Oven Glove - Hot Surface Handler

The Ove Glove Hot Surface Handler from Ove Glove

  • 540 F – Flame Resistant
  • Made with Kevlar® & Nomex® by DuPont
  • For Left or Right Hand
  • 5-Finger Flexi Grip

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.

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. :)
