So I was taking a picture of the wort and I accidentally dropped my cell phone into the boiling wort. I quickly got it out within 10-20 seconds with some thongs.

Do you think my beer is fine? I am worried about any chemicals that may have seeped into it.


Yea I know stupid move

My guess would be that your beer is fine... you have to try pretty hard to mess it up. Your cell phone, on the other hand, is probably a different story.

It's fine. Sounds like you made a Blackberry Pantydropper to me.

That's a homebrewer, drops his cell phone in the boiling wort and wants to know if his beer will be okay.

I'll bet that hurt....

Sorry man...couldn't resist. I'd take the word of others on here......If they say it'll be fine, then chances are more than likely you have nothing to worry about except the phone.
