I use electrical tape around the connection as well in case the clamp fails. Ghetto? Yes, but it does hold up under (some) heat.

My worry about dropping it is about the paper scale inside shifting and making it inaccurate. Most times it's been dropped, it was in the plastic tube it came in. Maybe they are like cars, and the old ones were heavier and more durable.

I suppose now that I'm running my mouth it will break next time I look at it... :-(

It's not the wort chiller.






Sorry, had to do that even after reading the thread I couldn't stop myself.

Similar thing happened when brewing my first Saison. Ended up killing my gravity, and I thought the extra hose-tinged water would kill my beer too. But it turned out awesome!

Been in bottles for a little more than a week now. Curiosity got the best of me and I cracked one open last night. Green for sure, but it tasted awesome.

Brewing King Brian’s Caramel Amber yesterday (1st AG). The little rubber gasket popped off the garden hose input connector. I failed to notice.

Turned on the water outside and returned to find water spraying up to the celling, down the wall and cabinets. Hilarity ensues.

Next up: The Great Spent Grain spill of 2013…
