I have my first stuck fermentation. I am pretty sure it's because I turned the heat down in the house when I went on vacation, the basement got down to around 40something degrees.
So I raised the temperature to 65 hoping that would do it, but nothing. I read some of the threats that deal with this and they recommend racking the beer into another fermenter on top of the yeast. I might end up having to do that if there are no other options.
Any ideas?

What about to do get some yeast from the bottom of your conical and try to make and starter with it and the repitch? A little more information on your situation will help ¿what kind of yeast are you using? ¿what is your current gravity and what´s your target gravity?. What are you brewing etc etc. There is so many variables...
