Default Day 9 of the Biere de garde..SG question...

I started with 1.066, 9 day in it's 1.036.

northern brewer has really vague instructions, they tell me to ferment at 66 degrees for a week or so and then fropthe temp to 32-34 for three or four weeks. i emailed them about a SG range to start lagering and they said 1.017...I'm not even close...any suggestions?

shake it gently to get the yeast suspended again, maybe warm it up a little. If I remember correctly, the yeasts used in Biere de gardes and saissons are prone to stalling.

done, thanks. i had to turn the heat on in the house to bring the temps up in the basement to 70.9. i'm not going to touch it for 10 more days, then take another reading.
