    Do you have the recipe of your brew? How strong the beer is, the intended fermentation temperature, and ingredients in the recipe could all contribute to a stuck fermentation

    It isn't really possible to offer any advice without all the specifics of your batch.
    Are you able to post the recipe?

    Yeah, more details will help but the usual steps are
    - Warm it up
    - Swirl the fermenter to get the yeast moving again
    - pitch more yeast
    - Sigh and accept it's not moving and wait a week to see if it moves
    - Toss it in a keg, hope it tastes good and move on ;)
