Default ooops, rusty @ this and made mistake

Hey guys I am back from my 4 month sabbatical and I have a new mistake with 2 options for correction:

I just brewed my cider recipe (apple cider, cinnamon sticks, wood chips, brown sugar, and Lavin dry wine yeast) and I lost track of air space in my carboy - it is now DARN FULL (like as full as they get without overflowing)

Option 1 - pour off a few inches

option 2 - put in guest shower and rig a blow-off tube

I am concerns about loosing yeast if I go with the pour off option

Blow off. Cider ferments gently anyway.

regular air lock. I've never had a cider even krausen. They just bubble away.
