    High Final Gravity

    Hi everyone I have brewed an ale by Safale-04 (1.5 liters starter) but after 15 days my final gravity is 1.022😐 , I think it’s too high (OG was 1.070). I should wait more or Can I use “Safale F-2” ? or should do nothing? I read in website that F-2 is for second fermentation.
