Just thought I'd share a brewing experience I'll never forget. Always first for health and safety at work and wouldn't even take a drink the night before work the following day so what would possess me to have one or two while brewing a beer at home, well that's what's recommended (Relax and have a homebrew) so they say. On Monday evening I was brewing a lager for the missus and just as the boil had finished and into my second pint feeling relaxed I had hooked up the hose to the peglar on the tap of the boiler to but only over one barb thinking it will be fine. Proceeded to attach a hop bag to the end to catch any leaf hops before getting into the fermenter then opened the tap. Run well for the first 10 secs then whilst I stood in front to oversee the proceedings out shot a load of hops heavily weighting the hop bag and low and behold next thing I knew I was getting sprayed all over my arm/wrist with boiling wort. Don't for one minute take this mildly when brewing as I have second degree burns due too hot sticky boiling wort. Only saving grace was my wife who insisted I run my arm under cold water till it was numb which I did then later covered with vaseline and wrapped in cling film to be assessed the next day at the local clinic. Be very aware when brewing and enjoy it you should but don't take your eye off the BOILING wort ..
