Yesterday I made a mistake when brewing with star san for the first time. I meant to add .04 ounces of concentrated star san into my 25 ounce spray bottle. Not thinking straight, I added just under 1/2 ounce (.05 and. 5, whoops). Today I realized the mistake. My beer is bubbling and fermentation appears to be under way. Should I be worried for any reason?

No, if you dumped the whole bottle of star San in then yes.

I'm sure nothing to be worried about... I remember reading a post about some guy that forgot to dump out the starsan from his fermented after sanitizing it, and siphoned the wort right on top, mixing it with the starsan, and his beer still turned out ok... StarSan is just a great product
