No, you shouldn't.

You don't need any help. Sounds fine to me!

I've got a beer that took 2 weeks to get down to 1.025 from 1.091 (the trippel in my sig). That batch was bubbling about 2 hours after I pitched the yeast, too.

It all depends on your pitching rate, gravity, oxygenation, yeast viability, temps, etc. Lots of variables. If you're down to 1.010, you should be good to go.

Well, you say "nearly finished". What did you expect it to get down to?

Unless it started below about 1.045, I'd say yes.....it's ready to bottle.

What does the style of brew say the FG should be when it's done?

If you're within the range then you can rack it to a secondary for clearing.

the sg says to bottle at 1005. but i did bottle it at 1010, there was no change in sg gravity over 3 days so i bottled it. we only put them in secondary in australia if thay are going in to kegs. but im getting a get set on the 29th for my birthday. so i will be doing that, putting the beer in secondry.. i dont know why we dont.. all we seem to do over here is buy the can of beer, add 1kg of dextrose, yeast and into your fermenter. after that we bottle it (with the tea spoon of sugar to)
