So I was letting my wort cool down. when it finally got down, I mixed in the yeast. I put the cap on and started to twist in the air lock. Reealizing now i should do hat before i put the lid on, the rubber gromet popped into the wort, it sank to the bottom. If i didn't need the rubber gromet for the air lock, I might just leave it and pull it out when I racked it. I used my lage spon but couldn't find it... I was left with no choice, I had to sanatize my hand. I found it quick and got it out, but my hand and fore arm were in the wort at room temp... I didn't know what else to do.
