Hey everybody, I have a question for you. I was making a starter today, and I when I went to put the cooled wort into by growler, I noticed that I had broken the tip of my flaoting thermometer, and all the little metal bb's were sitting in the wort the whole time it was cooling off. I had a screen on my funnel, so none of the glass or metal got in the growler, but they were exposed to the wort for at least 10 min. but what I am wondering is if anyone knows what type of metal that is at the bottom of the thermometer, specifically I am wondering if they are lead, in which case I'm sure my starter is ruined. any advice it appreciated!
