Title: Re: Brewer's Gloves?
Post by: Slowbrew on March 03, 2020, 12:24:01 PM
I use a pair of Weber Grilling gloves that I have for the smoker.  They resemble welder's glove more than anything else.  I only use them for moving kettles off the turkey fryer stand.  I got tired of having slightly burned fingers or starting shop towels on fire.

I don't contact the boiling liquid very often so I've never worried about to much about water proof gloves.  Except for the stronger caustic cleaners, and for that stuff I have nitrile gloves in the shop for cleaning brushes/auto repair work anyway.

I have some lined rubber (can't remember type) grilling glove that are for pulling meat off of the grill. Food safe, so that is good. Saw those at the big box stores, said I'm buying these right now.

My daughter bought me a pair of Ove gloves, as seen on tv. After burning my hand when dumping the BK while rinsing with hot water I remembered the gloves and use them every brew day. They are not waterproof but work on the hot stuff.

I bought some chemical resistant gloves at Lowe's.  They are thicker and work well for chemical and hot liquid uses.

   I have a couple pairs of the green, long cuff heavy duty nitrile gloves that M.B. and Williams sell, no name brand on the packaging. I use regular kitchen gloves for a lot of stuff, they provide better tactile sensitivity but they're a PITA to get on and off, if I'm in a hurry, need better heat resistance or more skin coverage it's the greenies I grab. If I need more serious heat resistance, like breaking up dough balls by hand in 150* mash, I use Scorpio gloves by Ansell Edmont that I think I got from MSC supply years ago.
