Well hopefully someone else has a solution to your problem. The only thing I could say is try and check that gravity before throwing it off the primary. Sometimes with those low temps you need some more time on the yeast. But that is all hindsight.
I should have kept it in the carboy on the yeast longer. The thing is is that I know better! I'm now kicking myself that I put it in the keg with it being such a high FG.
If the yeast were not done with what they were doing wouldn't there be some sort of off flavor? Diacetal? When I tasted it, I thought it was one of the best samples I had tasted.
I also took a refractometer reading because I couldn't stop trying to convince myself that I read my hydrometer wrong. The refractometer read 1.038, which I know is distorted because of the alcohol in the beer, but I tried to put it into the MoreBeer conversion chart and I can't seem to figure that chart out or maybe it wasn't working right...
