Bought a cream ale kit on fri from lhbs.
When sanitizing i broke the hydrometer, slipped out of my hand, I thought that would be the only mishap. I was wrong.
As I was putting the Air Lock on the bucket, the rubber thing broke and fell into the wort. Upon getting my other lid and air lock together, i wondered "I should probably get that out." So I did a bad thing...stuck my hand in there and found it.
I hope this doesn't present any problems, I used long gloves that were soaked in sanitizer solution for a few minutes.
