I was taking a gravity reading from the spout and I pulled some sani into the fermenter. Will it be OK? I now know to pull the plug before hand.

I drank a glass of Star San once on a dare. It was fine - kind of lemony - would probably be better with ice.
I'll bet there is always at least a half ounce left in every keg I've filled.

Everytime I take the lid off my fermenter, I forget to take the airlock off and sanitizer gets sucked in. Just watch out if you ever cold crash with a blow off tube. People have had quite a bit of sanitizer sucked in that way.

I’ve done it in the past with no apparent issues. Did it again on Saturday when getting ready to bottle my latest beer. Freaks me out at first but it’s fine I’m sure...
