Being an extract kit...first of all it would have been difficult to take an OG anyway (thoroughly mixing is an issue), but it might be done at 1.020 (some just stop there). The easiest thing to do would be to let it sit for another week just to be safe, and let the yeast clean things up.

Settling out clear @ 1.020 after 4 days,I'd say it stalled. The pitch temp must've been high for it to stall out at 70F.

Swirl up some yeast without splashing & cover it with something. Give it a day to get going again. It could knock off a couple more points.

Nevermind, i re-read this and figured it out... I put my wine thief (after sanitizing and swirled it around a bit to get the yeast to move around back into suspension. I will wait and see what happens.

See if it'll go down a little further.
