Doh! went to check the wort fill level in the conical as I was wrapping things up and dropped the lid gasket in the wort.

tried to fish it out with a santized hanger, but gave up after a couple of tries and just slapped a new gasket on and called it good.

Don't feel like the loan ranger....I was racking 5 gallons out of my oak cask with an acrylic racking cane,
it snapped off and will just have to remain in it's new home until the cask gets emptied....prolly years from now....
