You can start to water them if they're limp, but otherwise, leave them in the garage, cool and dry, for another month, unless you can give them really good light. Water if they're very limp but just enough to keep them going. If they've lived this far, they should certainly survive. You can replant and they'll grow in the barrel this year, but if they start to look drawn and leggy it would be better to cut them back to make them bushier. You could then use the prunings to take cuttings. Win win!
They're semi-succulent so they like it cool and dry over winter. If they're damp and shady, they get very leggy. Usually, indoor light isn't good enough so you'd be better to keep them dormant until light levels and temperatures improve.
Hope this helps!
