Default Rubber Stopper stuck in jug :(

I just bought a jug of organic apple juice. Activated some yeast and then I put the rubber stopper in and it slipped through and fell into the juice. They deffinetly fit because I did the second and thrid bottles fine.

Is there any way to fish it out?

I think you should let it be and get another stopper.

Leave it for now. When the cider is finished and moved from bottle, follow this video to get the stopper out.

Yeah, better to leave it. I have done it with a beer. Stopper did not affect the flavor. Stained the stopper, but oh well. Not worth infecting it now.

Probably only once since it works so well.

I found the video when I had a bung stuck inside a carboy. It took about 20 seconds to get it out using a grocery bag.

I put some water in mine for lubrication and then just put a small hook on the end of a coat hanger and pulled it out, worked good.
