It's awesome this is my first beer using sauergut, natural biological acidification.

Is it done, or does it need more time?

Well done, Crunk! Sauergut really makes a big difference. Much nicer flavour than you get with lactic or acid malt. I have a little 2 litre stainless growler reactor going now. I use around 750mL in the mash and kettle, and then top it up with fresh wort out of the mash. The SG gets pressurised from the CO2 of the hetero-fermentative process, and I can dispense it like a spunded keg. No need for gas at all. I fill a 500mL and a 250mL flip-top bottle before dough-in. There is a definite flavour in Augustiner that I suspect is SG, and I'm finding it in my own beer since I started using SG.
When I read about SG first, I thought to myself "this is a lot of trouble to replace a few pennies worth of lactic acid". Now, I know it's absolutely worth the trouble. No comparison!
Kudos and gratitude to Weizenberg for encouraging the use of SG.
