A Pic(k) of the Week only a brewer could love.
Hoses are the essential flexible pipelines of brewing. Through them, brewsters transfer unfinished and finished beer. If they become kinked or nicked, beware: they can offer safe harbor for unwanted wild yeasts and bacteria. Infected beer! To ward off those nefarious microbes, smart brewers store their (cleaned and sanitized) hoses coiled gently or spread out horizontally, but always off the floor.
Like so ...
