Retrieving a bung that fell into a carboy

Dropping the bung into the carboy while installing the airlock is a common mistake.  Don't worry about it.  Just leave it there and get another bung.  Install it right the second time.  Then, finish the fermentation and racking as you normally would.  Rinse the carboy to get all the trub out.  Then, use the trick in the video below to retrieve the bung.  A plastic bag becomes a valuable piece of beer brewing equipment.
