Should I dump my brew, Galvanized steel elbow
 
3 Attachment(s)

So, While building my new brew pot I decided I wanted a pick up tube installed. Pieced everything together brewed a 5 gallon batch and saw a black film floating in the wort. I figured it might have been protein rest. Nothing else seemed odd. Transferred my wort into my glass carboy, pitched the yeast and it started fermenting within 24hrs. Today I was moving my gear around and noticed some rust on the 90* street elbow of my pick up tube. Turns out that 90* elbow is galvanized and not stainless steel. I guess I am dumping this batch and chalk it up as a loss .
