Over aggressive fermentation
 
2 Attachment(s)

This is my 3rd all grain batch but have been brewing for 2 years and never encountered this issue. We are fermenting just shy of 6 gallons of sg 1.086 wort with a fresh starter of safale-04. It is in a standard plastic fermenting bucket. I was a little worried that there may not be enough head space so we put it in the basin sink just in case. The temp is 64F during the day and 60F at night. It had been about 22 hours and I have changed the airlock once and the lid popped open once as well. should I be worried about this while it continues to ferment? I am we'll aware at this point that 6 gal of high gravity wort is too much for the bucket. Any suggestions as to how to handle this? Should I let it continue to ferment and change the airlock/ close the lid as necessary? Thanks in advance for your advice.
