I just looked at my brew log, and I racked into the secondary after 13 days. No diacetyl rest, as at 60 degrees, that would be where a normal diacetal rest would be. What I did, and it worked like a champ, was: I added more yeast( krausen beer).Did you oxegenate your wort before pitching, and how much yeast was pitched?
Anyway, krausening really helped. I let it ferment for another week( in secondary), then reduced the temp gradually to lagering temp. This step seemed to work, but wasn't absolutely nessessary. If you're getting endless fermentation after 3 weeks, then its probably wild yeast. Ugh..
Hope this helps,
