Default Hair in bottling bucket...

So I just got done bottling a 5 gallon batch of brew. I looked inside the bottling bucket and one of my girlfriends hair was floating around the bottom. I'm not sure when or how it got in there, I'm hoping when it was full with sanitizer...

Has anyone had a similar experience? Results? How worried should I be?

Take care!

I wouldn't be too worries, mostly because it won't do you any good!
You know the saying......... hair today, gone tomorrow! Hopefully it turns out good

Had that happen once. They were probably horse hairs. Think there may have been two hairs in the bucket to start with. Found a snake in one bottle of beer. That must have been the second hair.

Don't sweat it at all. Unless your girlfriend was vigorously rolling her hair around in manure your alcohol content is enough to keep any problems at bay.

Yes and it inspired a similar thread. pretty fun read near the end where we were mostly just coming up with horrific names for whatever crawled out. Basically at the last minute a stream of sweat slid off my forehead and into the fermenter. Seriously, I hadn't added the yeast yet, but it was added 60 seconds later. Nothing bad happened. As one of the posters noted, 'How did the Babylonians manage to do it' (with no concept of germs, hand washing, etc). Cheers.

My first All-grain batch was a centennial blonde for my father in law. My wife (a brunette) makes our labels. When we bottled, I found one of her hairs stuck on the side of the bottling bucket. My wife found a picture of a brunette holding the US flag and saluting. "Centennial Blonde, only her hairdresser knows for sure." ;-)
This beer is the family favorite. Great taste.

Reason: typo

I think you'll be fine. We have four cats. Their hair is everywhere (including my beer, I'm sure).
