Thermometer is calibrated to my stc100 probe in an ice slurry, so still room for error I guess! I need an oldschool glass thermometer to tripple check everything. The hydro is accurate at least (tested in water).
I used US05. The krausen was typical for thus stain and the yeAst cake quite large like usual.
I roused the yeast back into suspension. I'll take a SG reading wednesday (for my records) and crash chill ready to transfer to secondary on Sat. 14 days after that, it's keg, force carbonate and drink! Have a few weeks to blow a keg hmm so much responsibility!
