Default Arrrrrgggghhh!!!! O ring fell into full keg of beer!

Dag nab it! I hope it does not produce any off flavors or infect. Beer tasted good, though. May have to drink this one fast. I transferred from one keg to another.

I just got a shipment of single handle Pepsi ball lock and wanted to transfer from a Hoff-Stevens corny, because the beer line was only 3' and 3/8". Nice glasses of foam!

New 3/16" line, 10 foot long and 3 PSI pours nice, and beer tastes a lot better.

It should be fine. Was the o-ring sanitized, or random?

It had been in some boiling water, which the keg was rinsed with, prior to kegging.

well then your probably ok. i don't think it will cause any off flavors and since you boiled it there shouldn't be any risk of infection.

"Hmmm. . . Is your beer chwey? My beer is chewy"

If you want, send me the keg as is, and I'll get that o ring out for you and return it to you.

you just dumped boiled water into the keg for sanitizing??? I think it takes boiling temps for 10-15 minutes for sanitization to occur. I'd be more worried about the unsanitary keg than the oring.

The keg was steam cleaned prior to shipping. There are others on the board that successfully use boiling water for sanitation.

Kegerator is as 37*.
