Sigh. I was just racking my first wine kit from the bucket fermenter to a carboy. I had both on the kitchen floor because I didn't think I could safely lift the full bucket to the counter. I thought "I'll get it going and when it's about half down and the bucket is lighter, I'll raise it up." Which I did. And in the process, I pulled the hose out of the carboy and the end fell on the floor. Without thinking (because wine was pouring out onto the floor!), I snatched it up and stuck it back in the carboy. So, how strong is k-meta?! Think it will protect from any nasties, or should I prepare myself for failure on this one?
