Default Should i keg it?

Quick question, I have a Double Oatmeal Stout extract kit on the go. Its at 1.014 for the last 3 days. I usually like it under 1.010. Can I keg it or is the fermentation stuck? What should I do?...thanks.

It's done. 1.014 is actually on the lowish side for an oatmeal stout, or at least low/mid range. Mine finish at 1.018 usually.

Definately keg...people concerned with stuck fermentations are usually up over 1.024 (depending on OG).

O.K. All done keging. Start at 1.042 and end at 1.014, 3.7% APV. My buddies will laugh at me. I guess I should have added more sugar? Didn't expect it to end at 1.014.
