Default Ferment in keg with or without pressure

So I just finished my first pale ale and put in my keg after 6 days, which I regret but now the FG is at 1.021 and says it should go down to 1.010 so do I put any C02 on the keg or let it sit a few more weeks before I put the pressure on? Thanks in advance for any help.

Default

it may be a stuck fermentation, if it is not it should lower to somewhere around 1.010. Keep it in a warm area if you decide to let it sit. Pull the relief valve every now antd then to see if it is doing anything. I have had a few beers finish at 1.020 after a month in primary fermentation for several reasons, but they still tasted great.
