Default Lost O2 stone in carboy

As the title reads; my O2 stone blew off the hose and into your carboy (Imperial Black Rye IPA). As you can figure, it'd be hard to find. Is it worth it to try and transfer my beer over to another carboy to retrieve it, or just leave it till I rack my beer over?

I had the exact same thing happen last batch. I left it in until I racked. Amazingly, it cleaned up fine and still works, though in the meantime I had bought another stone just in case. When you get it out, boil it in some water for a few minutes, then blast some air through it.

I now have hose clamps on each tubing end to prevent that from happening again.

Drop a magnet in to keep it company. :-)

Seriously, people lose crap into the fermenter all the time. One of my best batches had a sample glass for the whole of primary, and an airlock stopper added for good measure on day three.

There's an idea for a beer's name: Missing Parts Pale Ale.
