    i found the cork on the floor the day after i set the blow off, it is a one gallon carboy
    i don't know how many hours it was like this
    should i continue the fermentation or it should be considered contaminated?
    any one had something like this?

    It'll still be outgassing so the pressure will make contamination unlikely , should be perfectly safe

    I'd move forward with it. Take a sample when you rack or package it. I'd bet it'll be acceptable.
