thanks for all the support gents.
I turned up the temp to 75, roused the yeast a little, and 3 days later, I am reading 1.015.
So as previous members indicated, this Belgian strain just likes to take its time finishing.

Congrats - let us know what it dries out to. The 3724 I have going in "How Rye am I - Saison" is being pokey too. 7days 1.059 ~ 1.038 @ 74 degrees. The other 5gal with 3711 7days 1.059 - 1.010 @ 74 degrees (recipe says to dry to .008 or .006).

19 isn't all that high. I'd expect it to come down some, but you're not too far off. It won't be a bad beer if it's in the teens.

I did the how rye saison over the summer with 3724 and it was excellent. it finished at 1.004 and was nice and dry with some kicking esters. i primaried 3 wks and it was a done deal. i always make adequate starters and never had any problems with this brew getting stuck at a high f.g. I will say that since all 11 gallons are gone, i'm wishing i had more.

Very common with high gravity beers. It could take 4-5 weeks to finally get down to the final gravity with 3787. Some suggest heating to 80 deg F, but I find that patience is a better option. What is your FG reading now?

I agree with Sweetcell, don't rack the beer from the primary.
