finished beer

hi all i have a brew in the primary fermenter, its been in about 10 days, so i think its finished,
this one was done in a fridge at 20 degrees, so can i just chill this down now to 4 degrees
to clear it up, and then transfer to a corny keg, and force carb it,
many thanks.

so the beer is still 1030, started at 1060,

but by using 5 kg, do i get a better efficiency ,
i think achohol will be around 5% is this right.
may use 4 kg next time?
thanks.
