I once dropped "the Joy of HomeBrewing" in the beer just prior to bottling. It was under one edge of the carboy to angle it and I forgot about it when I moved the carboy after transfer. Plop, into the bottling bucket.
No problems with that batch.
I dropped several small implements into the unfermented wort as well as several other violations of good sanitary practice.
Sanitation is still important, but you just can't sweat the occasional slip-up.

Well, the first batch of homebrew I made was a saison I called "Bras D'Or", or "Golden Arm."

Want to guess why?

The rubber grommet fell in just as happened to you. Not knowing what to do, and not knowing any better, I washed and sanitized my hand and arm...and reached in. I found the grommet, and the beer turned out so well that I am fully addicted to homebrewing.

Now, that was during primary fermentation, and it was a warm fermentation with a particularly voracious saison yeast (Wyeast 3711), so perhaps not for every one.

I have since resisted the temptation to dunk my arm in every batch I brew, but should you decide to go fishing, you won't have been the first.

Nice! That exact thing happened to me.. Using "the joy" to prop my carboy up, because it's about the perfect height.. Dropped it in the bottling bucket and everything.. Funny stuff
