Default Is the wort/beer salvageable after a blow off?

I brewed my first batch yesterday. Everything with the brew went as planned and I pitched the yeast yesterday about 3:30. When I woke up this morning fermentation was rocking along. I then left to go to work.

The wort is fermenting in a better bottle with a #10 stopper and 3 piece airlock. My wife called me at work around 2:00 to tell me the stopper blew off the bottle. The mess is minimal and seems to have just overflowed a little, kind of like lava flowing down a volcano. I don't think I lost very much.

Anyway, I left work and stopped by my LHBS. They did not have better bottle blow off stuff in stock. So, I bought 3 feet of 1/2" tubing.

I cleaned and sanitized the stopper, tubing and airlock. I attached the tubing directly to the airlock and ran it to a jar 3/4 full with sanitized water. It starting bubling immediately and looks to be bubbling vigorously.

So, will my beer be OK?

Thank you. I thought it would be even though it was exposed for 2 - 3 hours. I just needed some reassurance.

Your beer is ruined.
Please send it to me for proper disposal.

You are good. The CO2 flow heading upward and outward will be enough to prohibit any contaminents. Although, you are welcome to send me a six pack of it...for er,um....me to run through my QC lab.
