industrial grade brewing gloves are standard issue in commercial breweries! Blichmann Has been using them in the "Blichmann Research Lab" for years and wouldn't brew without them. Why?
*Reduce risk of burns and scalds
*Keeps harmful sanitizers, acids, and caustic chemicals from your skin
*Since they can be effectively sanitized, they are a great way to keep sanitized equipment sanitized!
*Elbow length allows you to reach into 5gal pails
*Tear and puncture resistant nitrile rubber are 28 mil thick - 3 to 4 X that of hosehold gloves. But stail maintain great feel and dexterity!
