Hello folks I started 2 kits a nero d avolo and a OB strawberry. I put them in buckets Put brew belts on them ( in basement) the stawberry hit temp first so i put yeast in. wait on the red to get to temp. Only to find out both buckets were leaking out of the pet cock.not the seal to the bucket the nozzle it self.I racked both to carboys. Do I need to add more yeast to the stawberry or will what I put in there be enough. Thank you all for your help

Larry, if you put enough yeast in before racking, then that should be fine for after racking, too. It should kick off in 24-48 hours.

adding some yeast nutrient would be beneficial also
