Well, the beer is made. I decanted the "beer" off the yeast, left a 1/4 inch or so of liquid and swirled it into suspension and just pitched it. There was activity in the air lock within 2 minutes. Pretty impressive.
I had about a gallon left over from my boil and so I put that into the jug that had the yeast in it to see what would happen. But, the mouth was a bit big and so when I put the rubber bung in, it slipped in too far. When I went to pull it out, I got the airlock but no stopper. So, there's a rubber stopper in the bottom of my 1 gal wort. Anyone know if this is going to be a bad thing? I am sure it isn't ideal but should I just dump it now or let it ferment out and get the stopper when I bottle. I will definitely taste before I bottle.
