The foam left over from Star-San is harmless and will not harm your brew in any way.

I was freaked out the first time I used StarSan as well. No worries.

Dried off the stopper. That fixed that problem. OG was supposed to be 1.040-45. My reading was 1.030. Not sure what's up. First brew is under my belt regardless of the outcome........

Was it an extract recipe? If so, it probably just didn't get mixed fully for your OG sample. No worries.
