I was racking my blueberry ale to secondary from my better bottle. The transfer stopped, the line was clogged probably by some blueberry fragment and in frustration I blew into the hose to un-clog the line. How bad is this?

into the secondary there should be enough alcohol to prevent infection.
i assume it was a "dry" blow not "wet"
(that sounds bad no matter how i tried to phrase it!)
simplified signature:
beer, wine, cheese in various stages of production
