Default 1.024 5 days and counting

I have a batch of beer that didn't take off right away but then went crazy fermenting for about 24-48 hours then nothing. Starting OG was 1.060 used S-05 yeast and ambient temp is guesstimated in the mid to upper 60's. Beercalculus says I should finish at 1.015. ..... This is a split batch and both are the same. I am thinking of racking into a secondary just to stir it up a bit to see if I can get a few more points out of it. I brewed this late on the 25th of oct. Like I said a very very fast fermentation IMO.

My current Xmas brew had about the same amount of time before it stopped bubbling. Leave it for whatever the indicated time might be and check the FG like you would if fermentation had gone on longer.
