Sorry. I am one of those lager novice's that drive you crazy. This isn't a German lager and the FG fits within the style guidelines for what I was going for. It is not ideal but I am good with it
Are you willing to give me some helpful advice on how to get my lager down below 3.8p or provide input on the possible problem?
Without FFT's you don't know what kind of wort your are making. So FFT's, along with plenty of healthy oxygenated yeast. That should get you on the map.
