I would warm it up to about 72. This far into fermentation you won't get the off flavors that go with a high temprature.

I thought I would give an update to where I'm at with this beer. It's been a long, slow fermentation as expected with such a high gravity beer. It's been about 5 weeks and every reading had shown a drop so I just left it ferment at 72F. My last reading only dropped 1 point so I decided to rouse the yeast by slowly swirling the carboy hoping I can squeeze the last 4 points out and get this beast bottled. I have to say, the beer tastes awesome and I can't wait to taste the end result. Thanks for all the help. Mucho appreciated!
