Default Temperature @ 15 Degrees

Hi,

I put down a batch of Coopers Canadian Blonde Ale 7 days ago. I took the temp this evening and its at 15 degrees. I'm wondering if this cool temperature messed up my fermentation; how would I determine if it did?

I would like to transfer to my carboy from the primary fermenter.
Thanks!

The only way to know if the yeast finished their work is to take a gravity reading. I would warm the carboy up to about 20 degrees c and let it sit for another week and gently swirl the yeast back into suspension.

Ok, thanks. Any idea what the gravity reading should be?
