That looks like 2nd degree, better get to the doc. Burns get infected real easy once the skin breaks. I got a 3rd degree burn that took months to heal. Enough said....

a blister like that does indicate a 2nd degree burn, but careful care and wound management will prevent infection. DO NOT POP THE BLISTER. It will happen on its own, but for now, just leave it be. Cover loosely with a dressing if you might get it dirty, or if anything might rub on it. When it does pop, and it will, wash with clean water, pat dry with clean towel, and apply a thin layer of polysporin before covering with a light dressing. Do not use occlusive dressings, that burn needs to breathe. After the first few days of that, you can start leaving it open to the air for progressively longer periods of time. If its gets red, gooey or stinky, see your doctor.

Thnx everyone for the well wishes and great advice...After reviewing my session, I found a lot of things that I could have done better. All Grain has a steeper learning curve, but the process is a blast. Here's to the next batch (without the pain)!

Wow, I think I would have called it a day. Cudos to you for sticking it out and learning from your mistakes!

As a side note, I pre-heat my MLT with tap water set to it's hottest setting. Then I just spray it in my MLT with the spray nozzel in my kitchen, cap, set it in the sun and let the steam do the rest.

Take it easy, and heal up man, I hate hearing about people getting hurt.

Good grief that looks painful!

You'll feel better knowing I did almost the same thing this weekend doing my first PM. I poured ~170ish degree water over my hand when picking up my MLT.

I feel your pain!
Well almost, and it was mine, not yours.
My first AG with my keggle I got careless and briefly touched the bottom rim of the keggle with my forearm. Was branded with part of the keg's orginal owner's name. Had a big "BU" on my arm for a while.
