Default I think I may have ruined my batch

I accidently top cropped my batch of AHB Summer Blond ale. I had a fermenter pretty full and had a beautiful kraussen going then I got home last night and found most of the yeast that was floating on the kraussen had blown off into my blow off tube. Is there any yeast left to ferment my brew I was brewing at a low temp 65F trying to go slow and I was only on my second day of fermentation when this happened. Is she ruined? Just check the atenuation and if it is not near final can I repitch more yeast?

There's billions of yeast cells left regardless.....It's a lot harder to "ruin" your beer than most new brewers realize.

Default Thanks

thanks for belying my fears. I have had so many problems with this brew I have dubed her the cursed blonde ale. It has been 4 years since I brewed and I have moved 3 times and trying to souce all of my equipment and brew this sucker has driven me mad. BUT she shure looks and smells GREAT
