Whoa...that is some aggressive fermentation! If you cleaned the LBK well, I cant believe there is wine yeast still left in there.

did you actually clean the LBK before sanitizing it? If so, I wouldnt think there would be any yeast left from a wine. I dont think your beer is ruined either. RDWHAHB!

Calm down and deactivate the caps key. You probably just had an active fermentation and maybe had a bit more than 2 gallons in there.

Spray some Star-San around the lid. Wipe off any gunk that came out of the lid. Unscrew lid. Cover with sanitized foil. Rinse lid. Spray lid with Star-San and get the lid back on the LBK as soon as possible.
