I hope so! there was a questionable part of the process that kind of freaked me out.
even though I rinse all of my mash tun bits immediately after and before use I noticed that when I went to pull a sample from the drain for pH testing that it smelled a little like barf like something had ####ing died in the drain assembly. so I tossed about half a pint and drained some more and smelled it and it smelled fine so I ran with it. I even tasted the pH sample after measuring pH and it didn't taste bad or anything.
after the mash was done I partially took apart the drain but I couldn't see anything in there. I'm guessing a chunk of grain got left in there since my last brew a few weeks back.
after this brew I partially filled my tun with hot water + oxiclean so all of the important stuff is getting a good soak. I may make this part of my process going forward.
