Well I've been pretty active here over the past couple weeks with a bunch of noob questions... Now I have a noob PROBLEM.

I was checking the SG of my Apfelwein and I cracked the side of the bucket. don't even freaking ask me how. I was just pulling the cap off and I heard the crack. it wasn't large, but Apfelwein started leaking out, so I quickly grabbed my auto siphon (luckily just sanitized) and racked to a secondary (2 1 gallon jugs... what I had at the moment).

So here is my problem... It was only fermenting for 9 days. The SG was 1.020 and now it sits under airlock in the jugs. What was disappointing was that Edwort's says not "necessary" to rack to secondary and I saw all the yeast cake at the bottom of the bucket. So I'm wondering if my first batch of Apfelwein is screwed or not?

It should be fine.

I've racked an Apfelwein after 2 weeks, and it turned out fine.

I agree, there should be plenty of yeast in suspension.
