Default is this a potential disaster?

sooooo as I was racking my carmel apple wheat from secondary to the botteling bucket today, the book that was holding the carboy at an angle fell from the counter into the bucket. I snatched it out quick but it definitly splashed around in my beer. Any chance that this brew will survive the possible contamination?

There's about a 99% chance your beer survived....we've all done things like that, if not worse.

Read some of the stories here;


In fact it was something like that that inspired me to rig up a dip tube for my bottling bucket, so I wouldn't need anything to tilt it foreward with, and fall in.

I and others put some tips to bottling here.
