Default Ball Valve Funk Plug

I forgot to purge my boil kettle valve and it spit a nasty plug into my carboy.

I got the plug out but.....


Is there any chance this whole batch is not ruined?

At least the plug was exposed to very high temperatures, and it's relatively small compared to the batch overall.
