(Hope this isn't a duplicate post)

This weekend I bottled a batch of Pale Ale. I set the carboy outside
overnight in the cold to cause any additional "stuff" to settle out.
There was about 2 inches of ice on the top when I went to siphon off.
All this doesn't concern me, however, the beer was _very_ cold when I
bottled it. When the beer warms to room temperature will it cause
excessive pressure?

Also, have I stunned the yeast with the cold beer and should I worry
about carbonation? (I have a right to worry; I just drank my last
homebrew.)
