I brought it upstairs its 72 there right now (at the moment) gave it a good shake for about 30 sec or so. Airlock started moving again. (I know not to judge by airlock)

Is the flux between 67 to 72 or 74 dagrees to much for hopefully a few days till the FG goes down?
I hope so! You want to make sure fermentation finishes.

If course! I have done some research on brewing, I just ask questions for extra input. So everything should go good then? Im not gonna bottle to my friend (hydrometer) tells me so, I cant afford and dont wanna clean bottle bombs. how long would you think bottling should take? If anything my tast buds work pretty good for a smoker. And my "keen" sense on decent beer. Thanks agian.

Yes, but that's really tough to get to work since you've got a high alcohol environment already. If it doesn't move a few more points, you'd have to pitch some fresh ale yeast, probably with a starter. But keep your fingers crossed, as it may get going again without any more help.

Well just checked my triple again, I did what yooper said and my fermintation is stuck. Im still reading 1.030.

Now i understand that i should have a starter. I posted a link above for people to see what I used. What and how much yeast should I make a starter with? Please and thank you.

EDIT: using my ipod so grammer is a bit off bear with it please.

Bottled it around 3 to 4 weeks ago conditioning in a cooler climate my basement 63 dagrees flst. So far its nicly carbed but way to sweet, i dont think the yeast were able to get all that suger.
But no bottle bombs!

Its drinkable and it came in around 7ABV. One of two things i might stash some away or the'll just get drank. I got a pretty good pipeline going so I dont know, I just get really board with the same thin over and over.

This was my first beer and had similar problems, I used the dry yeast and fermentation stopped, similar temps mine was fluctuating between 69-72, stopped rather quick after it's move to secondary. Mine finally fell to 1.24 and I bottled it, I would have waited but I don't have that much gear and had 2 more beers ready to brew that I just didn't want to wait on. Overall I wish it had not been my first beer, I really wanted it done right, now I have another week to go before I pop the first bottle and see how I did.
