Default ? about krausen

So I am brewing a saison and I just moved it from the basement to the upstairs closet because it is a few, maybe 4-6, degrees warmer. In transportation the krausen fell. Since I normally brew in buckets I don't see the behavior of the krausen. I am brewing in a 5 gallon glass carboy, I shattered the 6.5 gallon hence buckets from here out, which allows me to experiment with beers I know my wife might not like.
So does it matter that the krausen fell. My instinct tells me no because it is still viable yeast. I find that the more I learn the less I realize I know.
All my searched came up with "my krausen hasn't fallen" threads.
thanks

Moving it made the krausen fall, but there's plenty of yeast still doing their job.

That is kinda my thought. I wonder if a second krausen could form if the yeast are really still active?

Now that sounds like a plan. Time to head out to the garage and say "HI" to my kegerator.

Yeah it's possible. If fermentation isn't all the far along. Or maybe if you gave it another nudge, or racked to secondary. We get that all the time among new brewers who rack because their instructions say rack after 7 days, not by hydrometer readings. If they had a 72 hour lag time, then racked on day 7 they sometimes get krausens re-forming in secondary.
