    A week has passed and apart from sleepless nights/irritation and frustration the physical side of things has been embedded pain in my wrist which is healing though driving me crazy.This is something nobody wants so be extremely careful when brewing regardless how you feel about it.
    Shall see if I get some more footage tomorrow.

    Currently on the mend with only moisturizer and light dressing.

    If you don't mind me asking, how'd you do that Gerry?

    So that's a well-worn summation. If anybody new reads this, they would never brew. Brewing is not that dangerous unless you're an idiot.

    That's the second time I've read you're using E45 cream. Now I'm curious what happened. You can't be on death's door since you're posting but what happened (if you don't mind saying)?

    You are mostly right. But there are idiots out there doing all sorts of stuff. And even if you are not an idiot having one too many beers or becoming distracted, or poorly organised, or complacent, can make some elements of brewing unsafe due to some of the processes undertaken. That's why there is an extensive HSAW culture in the developed world to try to ensure accidents are kept to minimum, and that's why in a much lower key way we have this thread to remind people to be careful in what they do, but how they do it is entirely up to them.

    Read through the note at the bottom of the OP
    And in the meantime if you want an example of how things can go badly wrong when you take your eye off the ball and where two of the above risks combine (drinking and hot liquids) look up what happened to @Gerryjo here

    I've got one for you;

    If, like me, you stick your immersion chiller in the boiling wort at the end of the boil to sanitise it do not then grab said chiller with your bare hands - it will be hot! aheadbutt

    Had to run my hand under cold water for a few mins but I was fine - but a stark reminder not too be such a doofus!

    When I had my tea shop we kept Burneze spray on hand for burns and scalds. It works much better than dousing with cold water. A few seconds spraying and they were back to work with me cracking the whip! I think you can get it from Boots and loads of other places.............https://www.amazon.co.uk/Burneze-60ml-Spray/dp/B001PMNTBY
