I dropped a straw into the fermenter, I was using it under my cone so the wort wouldn't burp up. Slipped inside, is it ok to leave in there for weeks? Any recommendations?

It ain't all burritos and strippers, my friend.

Like a standard plastic drinking straw? Assuming you sanitized it first, it shouldn't be a problem. And even if you didn't, it's probably too late to do anything about it, i.e. I wouldn't bother trying to fish it out.

usually you'd use the siphon to suck the beer out after you're done fermenting...that one looks hard to prime.
There may be a way to get the straw to stand up, but I wouldn't know.
