So I have a 1000ml start in a 2000ml flask of Wyeast 1214. When I just agitated it by swirling, it foamed up and blew the foam stopper off the top. Should I be too worried about contamination from the blowoff falling back into the flask after coming in contact with the foam stopper (that was previously sanitized) and top outer rim of the flask?
