That would definitely help. FG is more of a result of unfermentable sugar in the original recipie. Lots of Crystal, Chocolate, and roasted malts in relation to you base malts would definitely give you a higher FG. Since you said it blew off the airlock, it must have been over 1.070 SG right?

I agree with Haji - also, S-04 drops out pretty quick - it's quite flocculent.
