Uh oh, think I ruined my first batch of homemade sauerkraut.

I just checked on the two jars and they appear to have dried out. There is no liquid covering the top of the cabbage. It's day 8. I haven't checked on them in about 3 days. I filled them too high and I think the juice seeped out over the last few days even though I had pulled some of the cabbage out to make more space. Should I chuck it and start over or top it off with a brine and keep going?
