you can warm it up some at this point, the majority of your fermentation is done. i'm not sure how fermentable the dme but it should drop about 8 more points. let it warm up a few degrees and get it to finish. and RDWHAHB!!! it's gonna turn out fine.
Actually, we had a warm weekend, and the ambient temp in the room it's in moved up a bit, so the bucket adhesive thermometer is now reading around 66 vs the 63 it had been at most of the week. I gave it a swirl last night, and am getting more activity in the airlock again (bubble every 10-12 seconds).
brewinhard mentioned this being a top crop yeast? So the yeast hangs at the top? Once it's done, will it fall to the bottom like other yeasts? Should I swirl it up again before siphoning to the bottling bucket, or just let it be?
Hopefully the next gravity reading will show improvement and I can get this down to the 1.013 range (which is the number I'm getting in BeerAlchemy, which would put me at 5.2% ABV. I did manage to hit the number on the OG (1.052). Certainly seems like this batch is proving to be all about the yeast.
