Customblend thinset ?

While installing floor tile over Ditra in a rather large project, I ran out of thinset (Custom PremiumPlus). Being in a small town the only unmodified thinset available was Custom's CustomBlend. Obviously, a step down, but at the time I wasn't concerned. I only use a bag or so before I realized what exactly I was using.
My quesion is whether this will turn out to be a big mistake? This is new house construction, so the floors are very structually sound. Is this thinset going to hold up?
Obviously, I am very worried, but its too late to turn back the clock.

CustomBlend. Obviously, a step down,...
if only that were true!! The good news is this isn't a shower that would get it wet. If it's only a couple of days old you can probably rip it out fairly easily, but longer than that and I suspect the pros will tell ya to leave it alone. keep yer fingers crossed.
