Brewed a fest bier 10 days ago. Fermenter was set at 50 and bumped to 52 the other day. Used 34/70 dry yeast. Usually, my lagers clear up and floc out pretty well on top. This batch has a pretty solid layer of gooey yeast on top still and bubbling has just about ceased. I did notice this ferment was definitely less dramatic than others, probably because I was able to chill my wort down to the low 50s for the first time before pitching. What do you all think?

It's going to take extra time at that temp. I'm assuming you're close to terminal gravity. If so (check) start bumping up the temp slow over a few days until you hit 65.
