So, I've had my Munton's Nut Brown in the fermenter for over two weeks. I've been consistently at 1.020 since late last week. I measured again tonight and again, I'm still at 1.020. According to the can, my FG should be below 1.012. It also advised a starting gravity of 1.040 to 1.044. My starting was 1.054. Now the can instructions are for a 6 gallon batch, I made a 5 gallon batch. My question is, does volume play a role in starting and final gravity? Looking at the numbers, it certainly appears so. So, have I stalled, or am I ok?

yes volume plays a role. You added a specific amount of fermentables (sugar) to an amount of water, the more water the lower the starting gravity would be, the less water the higher the starting gravity would be. If your gravity is stable you are ready to rack to either your secondary or to bottle.

As long as your SG is remaining constant you should be fine. i have heard of some beers being bottled well over that mark because it was a bigger beer.
