I think your correct in bringing the beer up to your room temp. Let the yeast finish their job in the warmer environment...might help your beer. Give it a week and take another reading. Bet you'll be down to 1.012-ish or a bit lower.

The comment on caramelization (sic?) is a good one...you might have a sweetish beer in the end...

The carbonation is normal...called de-gassing. Yeast don't burp huge bubbles of CO2 and some CO2 gets suspended. When you agitate the beer it causes an out-gassing.

Yea carmelization sucks.. I realized about this after my Mexican Corn ale turned out dark and sweet. Now I stick to very late boil extract additions (like 10 minutes) so I dont think that was the issue. At least I hope not.

The first beer I brewed tasted a little sweet after being bottled for about a week. But after two weeks, it was mucho better. Is the sweetness you're talking about strong, or is it more of an aftertaste?

I would say more of an aftertaste. I have noticed however that my current "sweet" batch of bottles is getting slightly better as the weeks go by. Its getting plenty of time to itself since I am in no hurry to scarf it down.

The taste is sinsational for my first attempt at a pale. Cant wait till its cold and carbed!!
