Well now 5 days in primary the vigorous bubbling has come to a stand still, done bubbling and my wonderful smell is now gone. I guess I must have had a pretty fast fermentation. I know most here say to just leave it be for a few weeks so is there any reason to open the bucket to take a reading or just leave it alone for another week or so?

I know "There's nothing wrong with leaving it in there for 3 weeks" but at the same time if its done isn't it done? Thoughts?

At only 5 days,only initial fermentation is done. It'll then slowly,uneventfully creep down to FG. Then give it another 3-7 days to clean up & settle out clear or slightly misty. Then bottle.
