Default Is it possible to over ferment

Ue to keg connection.com screw up charged my account but order never went into their system and they have no record of payment my beer has been sitting in my fermentor for a week I'm a newbie but was wondering if there would be any hurt in letting it sit for another week or maybe 2 the way seems its going or should I bottle this batch and make more for the new keg? Kegconnection.com very disappointed

Also if I can leave it should I move it to a secondary fermentor?

Leave it in primary. A lot of us primary for 3-4 weeks and keg/bottle after without secondary. It's fine

Let it sit for 3 or 4 weeks in your fermentor. One week of fermentation is too soon to bottle or keg. Meanwhile work out your problems with Keg Connection while you wait..

You are good Like they said above 3-4 weeks is no problem at all. Yeast will still be working to clean things up.
