    too much blow off too soon can lose 1/2 your yeast and under attenuate, it's happened to me many times but there is no way to know how much loss is too much

    It should be fine. Yeast is active and will push the O2 out. And there are plenty of yeast left to get the job done.

    Agreed. Have had the same experience... under attenuation due to too much blow off.
