According to Sean's spreadsheet your FG is 1.019.  morebeer's says you're at 1.021.  beersmith says you're at 1.020.

Those are all really close to each other, if you had a hydrometer you could check it directly.  But it sounds done to me, drink the one you splashed first :)

The appropriate FG for that beer is about 1.028.

He missed his gravity and got 1.071 instead of the 1.086 he was going for, so I would expect it to be lower.

The beer tasted... Really good. But I'm not a judge.

You are imminently eminently qualified to judge your own beer. Now, if it tasted good, get a second opinion. It may just be fine.... the heck with the numbers......I'd say bottle/keg it. Then figure out what's going on with your instruments....Brew another batch and get a second set of instruments to double check yours, or someone more experienced to check on what you're doing. Meanwhile you'll have something to drink.

To correct and serve...  ;)

You got me...... fixed.  ;D
