Default Ripped tin foil during stater cool down

Quick question, I made a starter Wed night and while cooling my flask/wort down in an ice bath I notice a rip in the tin foil (sanitized) so I made a new sanitized cap...do you think the starter might be affected?

I'm not sure when it ripped but I don't expect it was a long period of time. Is there any way to see if it is infected?

You should realize that Beer is the solution to most brewing problems.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

As the others said you should be fine, if in doubt pour some into a glass and taste it before you pitch it.

I usually do this anyway since I cool it down to settle the yeast out and then pour off the excess starter beer (into a pint glasss which I then drink!).
