What kind of beer is it? Sometimes my krausens don't fall back during primary. I usually just rack from underneath it into secondary. If you're going straight from primary to bottling, I'd just make sure you hydrometer readings are holding steady for a couple days. Then siphon from underneath the floating stuff.

Wouldn't hurt as far as what I have read up on. Seems to me that a majority of brewers may let it sit for about a month in the primary before moving it. So a total of three weeks may help finish the fermintation. Good luck.

Leave it a few more weeks then rack from under the sludge if there is any left.

I had a Kolsch that didn't drop krausen after 3 weeks. I've heard that cold crashing it will help it to clear and drop, but I didn't try it. I just racked underneath the foam into secondary, since my 5 gallon carboy fits in the fridge for cold conditioning time.
