Great thread...I use Mr.malty to calculate my pitching rates. For these last couple of beers the pitching rate was 150 ml of yeast for 1.056 OG. I hit the yeast with a little cooled wort from the boil kettle on brew day to wake it up before we pitch in.
My only input may be impact of pitching rate since you re-pitched your yeast. I've had some variability with Chico Strain, but in big, healthy pitches it does great. My last IPA: 1.065-1.008 (87% ADF) in about 11 days (that was the first time I checked it)
Sweet....sounds like you are all over it....making me thirsty.
