Default Explosive Fermentation

I have a big porter that I pitched yesterday afternoon, today I come home from work to a blown off lid. I assume at least 6 hours without a lid. What should I do with this beer? Should I let it ferment normally, or turn it into a sour porter? Yeast used was Nottingham. I expect some off flavors due to this, but should I just try to sour it instead?

Thanks in advance

I doubt you will have any sour yeast in it yet since it is in primary fermentation, I would suggest (unless you really want to take a year or so to sour/condition it) you replace the lid, add a blowoff tube and ferment normally. The beer will have been protected by the natural co2 layer from it's own fermentation.

Keep on brewing my friends
