I bottled my second batch of beer today, an IPA, 3 weeks in the primary straight to the bottling bucket. When siphoning I accidentally sucked up some of the gunk from the bottom of the bucket. Not much,just a little bit, tablespoon maybe.

I'm not overly concerned, just a bit curious what effect this might have.

It shouldn't have any effect at all. It'll fall to the bottom with the rest of the sediment you'll have in the bottles, and won't even be noticeable!
