Default Milk/sweet stout OG/FG

Does anyone know the range of original gravity and final gravity for a milk/sweet stout?

Thank you echo.

I took a reading last night and got 1.021. The brew has been in the primary fermenter for 7 days now (not using a secondary), how much longer should I wait to bottle?

What's the rush? Give it another few weeks, not necessarily to lower the FG, but to give them yeasties a chance to absorb some of their by products and clean the taste up somewhat. I tend to give my beer 3 weeks in the fermenter.

I took a reading at 7 days in primary and got 1.021. That was on 4/23. I took another reading tonight at 16 days in primary and got 1.021. I also had a taste - so far, so good! Do you think it is OK to bottle on Tuesday? That would be 19 days in the primary.

Assuming you brewed with lactose the FG is where is should be pretty much. Now it's just a question of letting the yeast clean things up or not... at 19 days you're probably OK, but be sure to let it be in the bottle for 3-4 weeks.

I did brew with lactose. I've decided to wait a full three weeks, so I'll be bottling on Thursday instead of Tuesday this week.
