You can leave it on the yeast in primary upwards of 6 wks (if not even more) with no ill effects.

So I'm gonna raise the temp to about 70(?) to see if I can't drop it a bit more. If it doesn't drop I am good with that FG. I'm planning on leaving it on the yeast cake for about two more weeks. I want to transfer it to a secondary just because I'm not ready to bottle and I will probably leave it in my closet (that stays pretty constant at about 70-72) for a month or two.


That's awesome; looks like the cool snap didn't fuck with it at all.

+1. I wouldn't risk racking it. Plus you're already at 82% ADF with 001. You're probably not going to drop too much more, but leaving it on that cake to clean up is still a good idea.
