I don't think you'll need to swirl it up again. It should get down to about 1.014 or so now.

ok i will let it sit until around Thursday or Friday and then drop the temps down to let it clear for a day or two.
what is a good temp to drop down to without killing the yeast

Leave it for 7 days,then drop to about 64F. That should slow'em down enough to settle out well.

"There are also times where the yeast just won't finish getting the beer down to the FG range it should. That's where the extra bit of sweetness comes from". - opinion of Unionrdr.

Others have said "its unfermentables that can't be converted".

So I am still not clear - surely if a champagne yeast was added that would indicate whether the sweetness was caused by an inefficient yeast that just could not do the job - as opposed to the view that no yeast will change things.
