It is best to place the receiving vessel on the counter when pouring a solution from one vessel to another.

yep, both flasks were off the burners, the one i lifted to pour was the one that boiled over onto the top of the hand that was holding it. I honestly didnt think that could happen, but boy was i wrong!

I'm usually extremely careful when brewing, but it just goes to show that accidents happen when you least expect it.

I've burned myself but not badly. And the lifting is kept to a minimum now.

I think Denny nearly set himself on fire one time. But he'll have to tell you about that one... 8)
Are you sure that had to do with brewing?

Of course there's the old don't sulfur smudge an empty bourbon barrel...I was looking to get a barrel for the club and Dave Houseman warned me about Gordon Strong almost blowing himself up.

That's an urban legend in our club....didn't really happen, but it makes a great story!  ;)

I have a silicone covered oven mit that I found at a kitchen store. Its great. The silicone has a lot of grip and it is waterproof and easily cleanable. Besides brewing, I use it when cooking turkeys and other large, heavy hunks of meat. I can just pick them up out of the pan - no tools needed.
