Help - rubber stopper fell into my carboy
 
The rubber stopper fell into my glass carboy while I was trying to place a fermentation lock on my beer. I brewed a IPA last weekend and was taking out the blow-off tube and trying to replace it with a regular fermentation lock. I guess I pushed too hard and the rubber stopper fell in. Thankfully I sanitized the stopper before it fell in.

I have two questions:

1. Will the beer taste like rubber if I keep the beer in the carboy with the rubber stopper for 2 weeks until my kegs arrive?

2. How do you get the stopper out of a glass carboy?

Leave it there and pour it out when the batch is done, no harm will come from it.

That happened to my with my first brew. It came out fine. The tricky part is fishin through the trub trying to find it after fermentation. :D
