Last night I grabbed the wrong bottle and soaked a nylon bag, marbles and string in PBW instead of StarStan. Then I drop all of them and some hops into the fermenter. Is that enough PBW to mess up the taste of the beer?

Do I hear Alice Cooper here?! Hey,hey,hey hey. Hey stoopid,whatcha tryin ta do? jk...
I did a similar thing my 1st couple of brews. The PBW was re-packaged in lil bags by my lhbs & said it was a cleaner/sanitizer. No rinse too I think. Luckily,I got no off flavors from the small amount coating things. Now,I use SunnyD 1 gallon jugs for my PBW & starsan,clearly marked in black marker. Won't be makin that mistake again!
