Default 7 stitches later...

Bottling sucks sometimes. I was using a lever style capper and an old bottle I probably used about 5 times...well when I pulled down the glass shattered and punctured the webbing between my thumb and index finger. It sucks.

If it was hot out, and you cried, you could tell people you put your blood, sweat, AND tears into it.

Then give them a big ol' wink when they take their first sip of your brew.

If you have a SWMBO this is your window of opportunity to get that kegging setup.

Wing capper or bench capper? My new bench capper seems to put more force on the bottles than the old wing capper.

Sorry you got cut, and hope it's better soon. But did you finish bottling?
