Default My son tossed a lego in the beer is it done?

I was taking out the hops after dry hopping in my keg for 7 days and my son thought it would be a good idea to chuck his lego in the beer. I removed the lego quickly. It is a double ipa abv is 9.5 and obvioulsy was fully fermented. Do i have to worry about contamination from the lego??

No, but you should name it something lego.

That 9.5% content should take care of anything. but I agree. A lego label is appropriate.

was it a red LEGO? I think the red ones are ok, but yellow or green may cause unwanted flavors

How many holes in the bottom of the lego? The less holes the less likely for contamination.

You know, after tasting a beer, I have often thought, "Hmmmm.... needs more lego." Glad to read someone has followed through with experiments in dry lego-ing.
