I just brewed NB’s Tongue Splitter (Extract) on Sunday 7 Apr. OG was right on at 1.045. This is the first batch that I “re-hehydrated” with a tsp of sugar (US-05 dry). Left it to sit for 30-40 min before pitching. Pitched yeast at 74* (wort temp). Put fermenter in a platic storage tun with 4-5 inches of cold water from the hose. Fermentation was violent for 3 days even though airlock didn’t bubble, later found a small crack in airlock :shock: . Dirrung violent churning fermometer was between 70*-72*. I have not checked SG yet was looking for a little advice.
Should I let it sit for 3-4 more days anyway then check?
How accurate are the stick on fermometeres?
Is my batch toast?
