Hi all,

Yes, another post about rubber stopper falling into the beer. I looked around other posts, but couldn't find a specific answer.

My IPA has been in the primary for 3 weeks. I transferred to glass carboy to dry hop, pushed airlock and stopper a little to hard and the stopper fell in. Airlock did not. everything was sanitized so not worried about infection (plus it's got alcohol in it now).

should I just wrap some foil around the top and leave it be? Was planning on kegging in a week.

Yep, unless you have a backup stopper. (If not, good reason, and excuse, to get one)

I'm sure you know, but sanitize the foil too.
