I also started this batch for the first 4 days at 64*. I did that with my last batch and it was super clean. I just bumped it up to 66* and in a week or so go up to 70 ish to finish and clean up. Then dry hop for a week and cold crash before kegging..
that about what I do, when you cold crash the krausen will drop

after four days I go to 68 to finish then cold crash at 33 degrees the then keg

if I am dry hopping an APA/IPA or whatever I do it in the keg

but in the end it is what works for you and gives you the beer you are looking for

I do mostly ales and have then in the keg in about 12 days

all the best

Use buckets and stop watching. One less thing to worry about. It'll be fine.

I use US-05 all the time, and it almost always falls out completely within about two weeks...and yeast really likes starsan! I have a punkin' ale fermenting right now that has about that same amount of krausen on it.

Thanks for all the replies. I wasn't really worried (as I stated in the original post) but just must wanted to make sure

I often have this happen with Safale 05. It will probably fall in a couple of weeks, but I've had it hang on longer and just racked from under it.
