I make it a point not to submerge my arm in the wort.

...well that's not quite true. A couple of times I forgot to attach my hop-back before filling my boil pot with hot liqour. Ouch. Now I start every brew day by writing "DON'T FORGET THE HOP-BACK" in my brewlog.

I suffer from the same affliction (Sasquatch arms) but have found a method that helps a lot. Before brewing, I wash up and scrub my forearms with a very stiff brush. Any hairs that were contemplating abandoning ship will fallout and rinse away with a good scrubbing, keeping them from falling into the brew later.

I do the same before cooking, or wearing white clothes.

with all the dog hair that makes its way into my mast tun and brew kettle, I'm not worried about a little arm hair.

My mom doesn't have hairy arms. Neither does my wife.
