This is my fist batch ever. The True Brew kit I purchased from my home brew shop was listed as a two stage. The kit included a glass carboy and a bottling bucket. The shop owner suggested my doing the 1st stage in the bottling bucket which made sense. My problem now is....I checked it this morning and there are a few drops of wort coming from around the spigot(which I was worried about). And yes I DID make sure it was plenty tight before I added the wort. Should I transfer it into the glass carboy?? Any suggestions would be awesome!!!

How long has it been in the fermenter? If it's been less than a week or 10 days, don't move it yet. Just put something under the leak, if it's making a little bit of a mess.

It has been in the bucket for about 26 hrs now. My main concern is that that all may get into the spot where it is dripping. Thanks for any advice!!
