Default over flow

I belive i made a classic rookie mistake, I started the first ferm in the carboy and when i got up this morn it was coming out the top. I moved it to a 5 gal bucket i had anohter brew in and moved the other brew to the carboy. I am wondering if this move from the carboy to the bucket may kill the pale ale i started in it. It was in the carboy less than 10 hours before i had to move it. It has since started to ferm again and i hope it maybe ok. Any ideas to help it or should i just let it sit and do its thing?

Dan

Yep that last one.

And don't try racking after 10 hours. Slow down.

I hear ya I was not trying to rack, just kind of had to as the wort was coming out the airlock I guess I forgot to add that part that is why I had to change to the larger bucket.

If you moved it from one container to another you racked it.
Transfering/moving is racking.
