Was the "plug" too big or too small? If it was too big I don't see how you'd be able to get it in far enough to have a problem getting it out. If it was too small and fell into the fermenter, someone will be along shortly to tell you how to get it out.

no it was to big so i decided to push it in to far, then i tryed getting it out b4 it fell in but to late.

the guys that sold me the wrong plug said to bring it back, and they will try to get it out for me or get me a new glass jug
