You mean the dent in the fermenter?  I wonder what they hit it with too.

No. The ladder in the corner. Think of all the OSHA classes that went with it.

Better this to happen when removing a hose from a fermenter than a port-a-potty! :o

You are right about that.  Ask me how I know.   ::)  It wasn't a port-a-potty but a "honey wagon" (think hog confinement) and will never forgive my little brother for pulling that valve.

I'd take a yeast bath over the stuff we had to spread any day.   ;D

Ouch, man that does look painful.  Hope that heals up fast.  Definitely a lot of things to watch out for in a brewery.  There was a pretty good article in Beer Advocate a few months back about the hazards encountered in a working brewery.  It's a very interesting read and helps to let people know just how hazardous the job is.

That's one of my employees. I did the same thing on smaller scale. That's what happen when you take off a clamp without closing a valve. You only do that once. ;)
