Default Altbier problem (WLP036)

I brewed an Alt with WLP036 yeast and 93% Munich malt. Original gravity was 1.046. After two weeks the gravity is at 1.016 and it won't go lower...

Do you think adding some US-05 yeast would make it go at least two points down to 1.014 or even more?

I'd really like this beer to be a bit drier than this....

Eh, would it be worth it? You made a nice malty and probably tasty alt.

Probably won't do anything. Drink and be happy. Mash lower / longer next time.

[edit] that yeast looks like an underperformer. Might want to pitch a LOT of it if you are fermenting cold as an altbier should be made.
