It's doubtful that you ruined it, but we need more info on your process. Exactly what did you do from start to finish?

I would say probably not gonna ruin it. I've used the spray setting on my kitchen faucet to top off my fermenter a few times right before pitching yeast and have had no issues. Seems the spray helped aerate also.

So it was a no boil kit? I still think you're ok. Just trying to figure out what you did.

That has worked fine for me. The city water is presumably somewhat sanitized by the processing it endures.
