So, is it OK to keg when there seems to be a little co2 activity and minimal hop movement? The hops seem to have mostly settled at the bottom. It's been about 7 days and it's a lager. Thanks y'all.

unless you're lagering it in the keg, you really shouldnt be kegging a lager for at least another few weeks. even if you are, 7 days is a bit quick, but a steady FG for a few days will tell you

I agree. I'd give most beers at least 10 days and that's if I'm in a rush.

Sorry guys, forgot to mention, it's in the secondary, primary fermented for about a month now secondary for 10 days to dry hop.
