No, it'll be fine. I've dropped things like rubber stoppers, and the rubber grommet (from the lid on the ale pail) in the wort, without any problems.

What were you doing when you dropped in the tubing, though? Inquiring minds want to know!

Ah! That makes sense. I don't have any small pieces of tubing around, so I couldn't picture how that could have happened.

Trust me, though- it'll be fine.

I've dropped stirbars into primaries more times than I care to admit. :drunk:

did that 2 or 3 times now when i take the flast off the stirplate i use a fridge magnet to hold the stirbar on the side, and have not send a single stirbar in to the carboys yet. Now watch me do it latter on today. :snark:
