I made a Belgian strong (2.5gal all grain, with 1lb clear candi sugar at flame-out) on 2/15.
She had a starting gravity of 1.090, and was active as all get-out this first 6 days (blew through the airlock, and was burping like crazy through the blow-off tube for 5 straight days nonstop).
All was quiet for a couple of days (2/22-2/24) and so I went ahead and racked to secondary on 2/24, pretty much the same schedule I've done with all of my beers for the past two years.
I took a gravity reading as I was racking, and it had only dropped ~.02 to 1.070 (1.068-1.070). I was shocked! Absolutely shocked. I figured I would have been well on my way to my expected FG of 1.022 by now.
I used a stepped up 1.5L starter from a the dregs of a bomber of Blanche de Chambly, and like I said, it took off like crazy right after I pitched.
I counted 1 bubble in the airlock about an hour after racking to secondary after watching for one minute. Doesn't seem to be doing a whole lot. Ambient temperature is 68F (20 Celsius).
Should I do another starter and re-pitch, wait it out? Any suggestions are appreciated. This is my first big beer and first beer with bottle-harvested yeast. :
