Cooled it.added it then went back to transferring.well my wife was transferring while I was cleaning bottles and I guess one of her hairs got in the batch somehow because when we were filling the bottles toward the end I noticed one of her hairs hung in between the wand and hose.... Think it will be ok? Also I forgot to gently stir the beer with the priming sugar but I did let it sit for about an hour after adding the sugar. Think I need to worry about hot spots in my bottles? And finally I used starsan to sanitize my bottles and didn't rinse just let drip for a few. That's fine right?
Starsan use, exactly correct.
Hair in beer... Seriously wouldn't worry about it.
Not mixing after adding sugar.... That has me worried. Sugar syrup just kind of falls to the bottom. But if it wasn't too thick, and you got some churning while transferring the rest of the beer, you should be ok. Put them in a box to be safe.
