    @Buc_Nasty - you are quite right! I realized I under pitched but really was looking for help on
    getting it un-stuck :) Looking at the calculator, that brew needed a 4L starter! I guess I
    really didnt ...

    I appreciate eveyone's feed back! So after reading so many ways besides the feed back here what
    I decided to do was two things:1) I will try and "coax" the yeast into eating again by adding
    less than ...

    @passedpawn:I didnt think about the lactose and FG equation vs mouth feel so thanks for that
    but I also didnt shoot for such a high OG. It was in my last variation of this recipe so Im
    just tweaking A...

    Made a bigger than anticipated saison with an OG of 1.100 (target was 1.094). So I made a 1L
    starter 24 hrs in advance. Ive never had problems with 1L starters in big beers - even stouts

    So I have a wine fridge that I use for my fermentation chamber. Being in the winter season, I
    needed a warmer fermentation temp that the household ambient temp. I rigged a lamp to my
    johonson controll...

    So, I use a wine refrigerator to chill (55 is as cold as it gets on a hot day) and unplugged, I
    add a lamp with an incandescent bulb to warm it up. I use a temp controller either way. I was
    impressed ...

    So I ran a batch yesterday and let it run for about 30 minutes (because wife made me run to the
