I just created a cold wallet on moneroaddress.org

I sent some Monero to the wallet.

I then tried to check the balance, which required my private view key.

It said view key was wrong. I am pretty sure I got the 1 and l in the key mixed up as the font is pretty much the exact same.

I have the 25 words, I have the spend key.

How can I recover the private view key?

You can download and use the monero-wallet-cli to recover your wallet (and hence the keys) from your seed. See here

You can also use sites like this to generate the view key using seed or spend key. Although the site performs the operation locally (you can disconnect the internet when doing it) i still recommend against it for security reasons
