When i went to go poke my air lock in the rubber grommet poked through. I had no mean of plugging the hole and had no luck fishing it out with the 3 foot spatula. So i lathered up my arm with some anti baterial soap 3 times and washed it off till i was positive that all the soap was gone. . . I got the rubber thingy out though. Hopefully this doesn't affect the beer i'm pretty confident that my arm was pretty clean but you never know. Anyone think that i'll have any issues?
As i read in another thread if you thing you might have ruined your beer you probally going to be ok.
Also, my OG was .004 under what the recipe stated (1052-1054) it should be, could this have anthing to do with the fact that i scorched some the liquid malt when i poured it in? (i did mange to get the burnt stuff out before it started to boil and need to add the hops).
Will any of this harm the beer. this is only my second brew (the other one just got finished yesterday and i had an empty fermenter
). Any help will be appriciated
