Buckets leak. Check for krausen and leave it alone if you see one. Hydrometer is the only true
way to know for sure.

You're fine. A few points is nothing to worry about. A good healthy starter at that gravity
should easily do the trick.

I don't see any problem with using them. It's not ideal but most stuff settles out once you

If you have a good ferment, it's not needed- but it doesn't hurt and may help. So give it a

pitch when it's at the proper temperature- that's more important. I brew places then drive home
