I was aerating before pitching and I heard a pop, I noticed big bubbles and realized my air stone detached from the hose. I then let the 02 just go into the wort and then shook like the old days before 02 injection. My question is will the stone be salvageable after thirty days in carboy? Tried to use a magnet, no luck.

junior: I was waiting for something like that to happen!!! That's a good way to shoot a stone thru a carboy's side. Probably, you turned the gas on too quickly: Before the gas is turned on, the wort will(maybe) slowly fill the tube up to the level of the surface of the wort. Now, you try to force a couple of ounces of liquid, with a viscoscity a few THOUSAND times that of a gas, thru a 2 micron stone. Hmmm, I think the rest of society calls those bullets. Please, aim them east, to the ocean!
