ok. Im really surprised that even after re-pitching, I dont have any airlock activity. I've had a beer do this before. I'll take another gravity ready and see if its still stuck.

Just give it time. I've had them stall out. Give it a gentle rousing, keep it warm (but not too warm) and it should make it's way down.

Update: I just swirled it again and added more yeast nutrient. Gravity is now 1.028. This is really slow.

Sounds like it's moving at least.

As of today, I have a few bottles left that we are drinking, a 5 gallon keg carbonating, and a 6 gallon batch fermenting, every batch is a bit different, the latest batch is getting lactose and some chocolate extract to mimic souther tier chokolat....which I think will match it pretty well!!

Thanks for the recipe Cheshire. I live in KC Missouri and my girlfriend wanted to get me some of Boulevard's seasonal chocolate ale for my birthday. Crazy thing is they sold out everywhere by noon, even all of the bars were tapped out by 5:30! So I told her that we could make a brew that would put theirs to shame, this was about the time I stumbled onto this thread. I recently got a new supplier in the area, and he doesn't have any extracts, so I pieced together an all-grain recipe based on yours. Just finished brewing it and got it settled into the primary, and it looks amazing, recipe goes as follows:

Recipe Type: All Grain
Yeast: WL002 English Ale
Yeast Starter: 1 qt amber dme overnight
Batch Size (Gallons): 13
Original Gravity: 1.088

Ingredients
17 lb 2 Row
5 lb Pale Ale
5 lb Flaked Oats
4 lb CaraMunich
2.5 lb Crystal 60L
2 lb Carastan
2 lb Chocolate Malt
2 lb Barley (Roasted)
20 oz Ghirardelli Cocoa Powder (last 10 min)
4 oz Fuggles (60 min)
1 oz Fuggles (last 3 min)
0.5 oz Amarillo (last 3 min)
3/4 lb. Brown Sugar
4-5 Madagascar Vanilla Beans (secondary)

I only added the brown sugar because I got too much water out of the mash, and knew it wouldn't end up as strong as I wanted. Should end up around 7.5% ABV. I also just added the Amarillo because I had it sitting around, and thought it would mix well with the brew and give it a nice aroma. So far tastes like chocolate milk and is about as thick and beautiful as any beer I've made so far. I can't wait until this has fermented out and is ready for the keg. I will give you guys an update as it progresses, but I'm pretty excited about this!

Of course it tastes like chocolate milk. Hopefully you can enjoy it.

ChshreCat, Now that I actually see his recipe is for 13 gallons, he is actually within range of your original recipe (Cocoa powder).
