I wouldn't worry. If it blew off, stuff is coming out, not going in.

I just did a Hefe and it definitely didn't go as planned. I too had lower numbers than I anticipated with my efficiency right around 60%. Mine was also greenish grey when I put it in the primary. It's now a nice yellow-ish color. I also put in a blowoff tube, as many suggest doing with hefe's and it worked like a charm I didn't lose any beer...just a whole lot of bubbling. It's still going a week later.

mine just finished fermenting, which is kinda weird since it hasn't even been 48 hours. Must have been that crazy fermentation earlier...

The greenish color is typical when you use pellets and don't filter the wort going into the fermenter.

I'd say your beer is going to be great. You've experienced a lot of stuff your first AG brew.
