Probably not but I suggest taking it off and sanitizing it now rather then just leaving it on there.

Was it filthy? If it was "kitchen clean" you should be fine...you can still take it off and sanitize it if you want to.

Would hot water and a good scrub make due?

I'd just pop it off, spray some sanitizer on in (star-san, iodophore) whatever you use and leave it be.. as long as it wasn't filthy to start with you should be fine.

So far since I'm fairly new to brewing beer I've only used cambden tablets and my beers and wines have been fine isn't here something i should use that is better? I'd hate to screw up a good brew due to poor care by my own part
