Batch Sparge Temperature too low

So, I add the recommended 168F sparge water and mix it well. I took the final temperature and it was 159F. Is that normal, or should I bump the initial sparge water up?

Muslin Boiling Bag Use

So, I used pellet hops to dry hop my IPA (in a glass carboy). I was hoping they would all settle down before I rack to my keg. Well, that didn't happen. There are still some floaters and such.

Repitching, do I reaerrate my beer?

So, I have a fermentation that I think has stalled. I want to repitch some yeast. After I make a starter, do I reaerrate my beer? It has been in the primary for about 3 weeks.

For reference,...

Don't go by one hydrometer reading. Have 3 of them, a day apart, be the same reading before considering fermentation complete. Also, IMO, leave it in the primary longer. It will have a chance to...

Off by 2 points? Don't sweat it. As far as the cooling, I had the exact same thing happen to me on my first batch. I couldn't believe how long it took to get to 70. It doesn't have to be cooled...

Yeah, leave it be for awhile. Check it in a week as Golddiggie mentioned. That'll give you concrete evidence of fermentation or lack of.

Give the yeasties a chance. They are pretty damn good...

Same here. Typically, I have a few days of bubbling. I take a SG at day 7, and my beer usually still drops 1-2 points before stabilizing. It is still fermenting.
