Default ooops, rusty @ this and made mistake

Hey guys I am back from my 4 month sabbatical and I have a new mistake with 2 options for correction:

I just brewed my cider recipe (apple cider, cinnamon sticks, wood chips, brown sugar, and Lavin dry wine yeast) and I lost track of air space in my carboy - it is now DARN FULL (like as full as they get without overflowing)

Option 1 - pour off a few inches

option 2 - put in guest shower and rig a blow-off tube

I am concerns about loosing yeast if I go with the pour off option

Blow off. Cider ferments gently anyway.
On Tap: 1. Kelly R. IPA, 2. Roter Hund Hefeweizen, 3. Bud Killer Blonde, 4. Red Dog Pale, 5. Roter Hund Oktoberfest, 6. Pumpkin Ale, 7. McRed's Stout (with new nitro system and stout tap,) Cream Soda, 8. ESB # 3, & 9. Ordinary Bitter.

regular air lock. I've never had a cider even krausen. They just bubble away.
