Default How bad did I oxidize my wort?

So, I was running off the wort into the boil kettle, and after a while i noticed tons of air bubbles in the line running from the tun to the kettle. I took me until the second run until i realized the problem. The barb fitting connecting into the ball valve on my cooler was too loose and was allowing air into the line--I have never had this happen. So how bad did I oxidize my wort? I went through a full run and half of my second run (I batch sparge) before correcting the problem.

Don't worry about hot side aeration. You'll be fine.

You think that's something to worry about? I had siphon issues after dryhopping for two weeks and just said **** it and poured the beer from bucket to bottling bucket. Stupid siphon! Beer is fine by the way!

I love reading posts like this, because every time I do something like this wonder if I'm the only one doing stupid $hit. I ordered a new bottling bucket and didn't spring for the 6 dollar bottle filler that fits, and didn't have a piece of tubing that fit so I just filled them from the spigot. Beer tuened out wonderful

I can't count the number of bottles I have filled from the spigot! The only downside to filling that way, is I tend to overfill quite often. Never made the beer bad though!
