Because that totally ruins the process.
I've said it before - just tell Walker to go home!

one tip I found out about the hard way yesterday was, when making a chili beer, wear rubber gloves when removing the chilis from the carboy after bottling. I had a hob bag full of chopped jalapenos and chipotles left in my carboy after racking to the bottling jug. The chili's had absorbed some beer and the bag was wider than the carboy neck. so I held the carboy upside down and pulled the bag out as the carboy neck squeezed about a half pint of chili juiceall over my hand. I washed my hands right after that. but then about 20 minutes later an excruciating burning kicked in all over my right hand. And didn't stop until I drove to walgreens and boughts some lanacane to slather my hand in. not a pleasant experience (but the beer tasted good!)

Walker needs the Darth Vadar theme song in the background when he shows up at the door. That would be so cool!

I find a 3' length of garden hose is really handy in the brewery. It screws onto the same adaptor for the bottle washer. You can fill carboys and tubs easier, wash bigger items with ease, and it doubles as a siphon to empty big tubs.

And it also works well for flogging those who neighbors who won't leave

I find drinking as much of what I brew as possible ensures you don't run out of storage space for more homebrew.
