Does the bucket have a spigot on it? If so, it was probably intended as a bottling bucket, but it could still be used as a fermenter. I wouldn't bother transferring to a second vessel, unless it's a bottling bucket. Just let your beer sit in the main fermenter for two or three weeks to condition and settle.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
