Default Infection possible?

I'm guessing that anythings possible but here's the story.

Boiled yesterday and put the beer in my Ale Pale. Shoved the blow off valve in the top of the bucket and let it set downstairs. Went downstairs at about 2:00 PM today and saw the blow off had came off, guess I didn't shove it in there good enough. Tried putting it back and shoved the small rubber gasket into the beer. Transferred the beer to my glass carboy and put the plug on since I could not seal the Ale Pale until I got that gasket.

May have had an opportunity to get infected, but I am hoping not.

I eat the stuff at the bottom of a carboy for breakfast!

Sure, the opportunity is there, but most likely you are fine.


Arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics, even if you win you're still retarded.

Welcome to the club! I'm pretty sure most everybody has pushed the grommet into the pale. I actually keep a couple spare grommets handy just for that reason. I'm sure you are fine though!
I love the sound of an airlock bubbling in the morning. It sounds like.....VICTORY.

the fermenting yeast will out compete any small bacteria that enters. It's when you get into the secondary or after fermentation you should be a little more worried. I'm sure it will turn out fine.
Thanks for the input
