Default Blow Off

I recently brewed a 13.5 gal batch of extract RIS (Home Brew Club Style for AHA). I think I may have pitched to much yeast. My air-lock blew off my fermenter. Luckily I saw the cap bulging and I had blow off tube sanitized and ready. My temp didn't get to high, I didn't smell any esters coming off the blow off tube. Will over-pitching effect my beer?

Pitching too much yeast probably isn't the cause of the blow out. Your probably OK.

No such thing as over pitching yeast IMO. This is unless were talking about a gallon of yeast. I would consider that excessive ha ha.
