Someone call the yeastamedics! My babies! My babies!

I'm using a solution of LD Carlson dry sanitizer and water in my airlock, mixed 1 tablespoon to 1 gallon of water. It's a no rinse type. Well... I was messing with stuff... and about a teaspoon at the most of the solution went down the airlock and into the fermenter. Oh noes!

Given it's no rinse sanitizer and only about a teaspoon worth into 5 gallons, I'm thinking it's gonna be OK. It's going to be OK, isn't it? Isn't it? Give it to me straight, doc.

yep, it's fine. for future reference, star-san is a no rinse sanitizer that lasts longer than your oxygen based sanitizer (I'm guessing its One-Step), and actually breaks down into food yeast can use, and also won't impart any off flavors if the residue gets into the wort.
