Split the batch between two containers!

Use a pot from the kitchen until you can get something more suitable.

Or, at least put the bucket in a tub, tray, or something, to contain the spills/mess.

Good luck,

thanks for the advice, I moved some of it over to my beer brewing pot and both are now fermenting vigorously.
