I know I can't be the only one out there that has hairy arms. Does anyone who is hairy armed have any tricks or techniques they would like to share when it comes to keeping arm hair out of the boiling wort or at any other part of the process?

Thanks!!

Long sleeve shirts with elastic cuffs ought to do it.

I just hope that Evan! never brews in his birthday suit (in case you don't know what I'm talking about go look up his 5k post 'surprise').

Chewbacca Ale anyone?



I guess I just have normal hairy arms so I can't be of much help.

He said he has hairy arms, not that he is depressed and trying to end it all.

get your arms really wet and then give them a nice once over with a blowtorch. That should singe all the hairs off and get you ready for a brew.
