To clarify, I don't usually age my beer in buckets for that long. Usually 3-4 weeks. That just happened a few times accidentally as life happens, with no ill affects. Another option for secondaries...

After fermentation has completed. Cold crashing will put the yeast to sleep so no more fermentation will happen until they are warmed up.

Also, for your next beer, make sure fermentation has stopped and that you use the correct amount of priming sugar. One of those is most likely the reason for your over-carbonation.

For some reason it seems whenever someone is judging/critiquing a beer and they get a gusher, they assume infection.
