I'm in the same boat right now. Fermentation stuck at around 1.042. I warmed the carboy up to around 74 degrees and shook it up a bit, but that didn't help.

I repitched with a couple packets of wine yeast three days ago because that's just what I had on hand, but that doesn't seem to be doing anything either.

I'm not sure where to go from here. I clearly can't bottle with the gravity this high, but I don't know how to get it down. My last resort may be to brew another batch of beer with some high gravity yeast just so I can pitch this onto the cake.

I just picked up another vial of wlp001 in case. However for now I just threw some yeast nutrient in the fermenter and shook it up a bit. Hopefully that does the trick I'll see when I get home from work tonight.

I'll repost in here later tonight if I see some more air lock activity due to the yeast nutrient.

Okay I just went up and checked. More air lock activity is present after addition of yeast nutrient. I'll reserve the vial of wlp001 for some other time.

I roasted my own. http://oz.craftbrewer.org/Library/Me...roasting.shtml I sort of loosely followed some of their guidance. Try just a small palm full first though before attempting the whole batch.

Roasted Rye

I'm pretty sure this is the same thing...but the home roasting idea is really cool.

Damn I should have roasted mine more than I did. Oh well. The beer is dark any way but I might have lost some flavor by not roasting it enough.

I did see the chocolate rye but wasn't sure if it was the same thing since it's 200-300L and brewpastors lists his as 95L
