So i got everything in my fermenting vessel last night and i got up this morning to find that the siphon lock was pushed in. I tried to slowly pull it back up through it's opening but the siphon lock's o-ring came off in the botton and now its in tje beer. Should i reach in and get it? I am concerned because i think i pitched it too hot. I was a bit tired when finishing up. But i was sure the siphon lock was up last night.
My main concerns:
Because my siphon lock was removed some time in the first 24 hours... Is my beer screwed?
if i reach in or use a spoon to get the o-ring... How bad is that?
do i need to pitch the yeast again?
i think i pitched it at 95. This was out of impatience and not finding my thermometer before i pitched.
Any advice on saving my beer would be nice.
Thank you in advance.
