Yeast mix up red/ white

I was transferring my juice ( California select Cab Franc) to a fermenter one of my reds was already fermenting, this does happen occasionally. In my haste to get my yeast in I accidentally added a packet of Lalvin D47 (for white) and a RC212 (for red) into it.

I racked the Sauvignon Blanc into the fermenter it seemed to be working also. Now I have no yeast for it.

So what should I do? Sulfate the S.B and get more yeast Monday? The C.F. I think will be ok.

Missed this post: how are things turning out? You would have almost certainly gotten away with it if you sulfited on Monday–grape juice is pretty hardy.
