Default Exploding 3787

So my Belgian Tripel is fermenting like a mofo. I came home from work today to the air lock (with rigged blow off tub) plugged and the gasket inside of the lid blown with krausen trickling down the side of the 5 gallon bucket. Could have been a lot worse!

Can I dump this beer into a larger bucket with more head space?

Wouldn't do it. Let it froth over, just put into something that'll catch it.
