Default Fermentor accidentally closed

Hi,

I am brewing some brewferm triple in a coopers fernentor. The fermentor has no airlock, just the non-closed top. The fermentation started on Saturday.
Tonight I went out for dinner and when I was back realized that because of my son trying to open it, my wife put something on the top not allowing the carbone Dioxide for several hours to go out. What are the consecuences of this?Will it continue normally now?

Thanks
Miguek

The lid will blow off.

if the lid has not been snapped shut you will be fine the CO2 will escape through the crack. if it was snapped shut and the seal is airtight it may blow off.

yes, it's not critical to have an airtight fermentation unless the fermentor is sitting in a super dusty, windy location where something could blow in. i have fermented without any lid at all (as was done for centuries) and the beer was fine.
