Glad to hear it! Let us know how it goes.
My best to you. I agree it is enjoyable. Stay encouraged and enjoy!Obviously, safety has to be a priority. Which means you do what you are comfortable doing.
I have 2 glass carboys break because I had wet hands. Whenever I handle glass carboy now, I stop, check my hands. I also put the carboy in a large grain bucket. So if it breaks, it is self contained. I haven't had a problem since.
I am constantly urging my fellow club members to slow down, think safety, and constantly review your procedures. Home brewing is a great hobby. But, it not worth getting injured over.
I understand what you are saying. I probably could have gone slower and I KNOW I should have dried my hands and the carboy before picking it up. It was definitely a preventable thing for sure. I was careless and I got lucky. I actually did consider a new glass one, but decided on the buckets from a cost standpoint as well as just not wanting to be worried about it happening again and not getting so lucky. Brew is fun, and I have found it relaxing (actually brewing and reading all I can to learn as much as I can), even though it is a lot like cooking which I do for a living. And you are right, it's not worth winding up in the hospital for.
Who's the guy without the beard and why is he there?Hilarious.
