Some consider anything over 1.060 to be a higer grav beer...
others say above 1.070.

It doesn't really matter..the point is that your beer is not carbed yet...but there is nothing wrong, carbing and conditioning is a living process and it has it's own agenda...If you read the link I provided you will see there is no hard and fast happens when it happens. Some beers take 6 or 8 weeks, some claim they have full carbing after a week (but most of the time they say their beer still is green) but eventually all beers carb up.

just take them back into a 70 degree space again and leave them a couple days resuspend the yeast...then check one bottle a week until they carb up...and all will be well.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.
