To select your size, measure the circumference of your hand at the knuckles using a flexible fabric tape or a piece of string in inches. That measurement corresponds with the glove number size. For half sizes, round up to the next size. For example, if your hand measures 8.5", select the size 10 (Large) glove. For 8.25", select the size 9 (Medium) glove.

    Laugh if you must, but I love these!
    Got tired of my hands being destroyed by acids, bases and just too hot water. These are great! Good thickness, quality make. The length is the kicker. They go all the way to your elbow so you can pick up things on the bottom of a very deep sink without worrying that you will fill your gloves with liquid.

    Awesome

    Buy these
    I didn't knowI needed these. Protects from heat, and PBW. Keeps hands dry when washing multiple carboys and kegs.

    Good Stuff
    I don't know how I ever brewed without these. They are thick enough for quick dips in hot water but not for prolonged periods as I found after I accidentally dropped a hose clamp in my hot liquor tank.

    Use them for the mash
    I use these to hand mix the mash instead of mixing with a paddle. Much easier and no dough balls!

    A Homebrewing "Must Have"
    I've been brewing for about 15 years now and recently decided I was tired of having cracked and bleeding skin from all the washing, drying, chemicals, etc. associated with brewing. Buying a pair of these was one of the smartest brewing decisions I've ever made. It's right up there with kegging and switching from glass to PET (BetterBottle) carboys. I absolutely love these gloves! Great quality and a steal at $12.The suggestion for stirring the mash by one of the other posters is an interesting idea.

    just what i needed
    perfect for protecting my hands from all of my cleaning chemicals. like others have noted, i just leave them hanging in my sanitizing bucket and just throw them on when i need to do any sanitary step in the process. i have really big hands and the XL are big on me. I can actually wear my wife's blichmann gloves (size medium) pretty comfortably so i would recommend ordering at least one size smaller than you normally would.

    A BIB Must
    There is no better tool to remove your bag of grains. These are also great for boil hop additions if you bag those too. Protects from cleaning chems. They are under $20, plus, Walt uses them, that should be reason enough, put this on your list for your next purchase if you don't have them already.

    Why did I wait?
    No more cracked, dry hands after brewing and cleaning.

    Does anyone know if these gloves contain any chemicals that could leach into the brew?
    G S on Jun 16, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: No, they do not contain any harmful chemicals. These gloves are standard issue at commercial breweries according to the manufacturer's website. They can be sanitized and are food safe. Here is what the manufacturer says about the gloves:
    Blichmann Engineering's industrial-grade brewing gloves are standard-issue in commercial breweries. Our research and development team has used them for years and wouldn't brew without them. We recommend the same for the serious homebrewer.

    �� Gloves reduce your risk of burns and scalds.

    �� Harmful sanitizers, acids, and caustic chemicals are kept away from your skin.

    �� Because gloves can themselves be effectively sanitized, they help you maintain sanitized equipment.

    �� Elbow-length size allows you to reach into 5 gallon pails.

    �� The tear- and puncture-resistant nitrile rubber is 28 mil thick ��� up to four times that of household gloves ��� while maintaining great feel and dexterity.
    Hope this helps....
