I ended up using us-05 yeast instead of the mono wine yeast in the recipe. Can I still age this

To those who are thinking about using US-05. There is some krausen, I would use a 6 gallon BB

On the latest group buy we placed it's about .20$ cheaper per pound or 11$ a bag. So no, even
with a toll and gas it's still cheaper. I purchased 3 bags which would equate to 33$ in
savings. And it wa...
