UPDATE!!
 I made two  starters( one for each carboy) with Danstar Nottingham yeast  slightly more the 1/2 gal each with an OG of 1.050 . i let them spin on the stir plate for 2 days, then pitched directly into the carboys. i had a noticeable increase in the fermentation in about 2 hrs. after 2 days they continue to have active bubbling of the airlock. more updates to follow

Frementing:
well you know
In The Keg: 2 Carbonating

Orange Porter(aged on Grande Marnier Light toast Oak Chips for 1 week)(chips soaked for 8 weeks)  ;D

ps: if no one is using a secondary, where do you age beer. you do not want to leave on the yeast cake forever? wont dead yeast cells affect the product after time?

 i feel like i have been spanked. i disturbed the yeast cake in each carboy trying to blend both together and keep the yeast cake.the beers are still fermenting, but very slow. i was half way through racking before i checked the gravity. remember, first Belgian strong or any Belgian for that matter. normally a apa, ipa guy. don't ever need to ferment longer than 2 weeks. i will call this a learning experience. i never stop learning.
thanks to all for your input, a lot of info i already knew and some i did not.

i will let you know how it all turns out.

I know i know i have made some big time rookie mistakes

i recently brewed my 1st Belgian strong ale. the OG was 1.098. it fermented aggressivly for 7 days, then slowed. after 14 days i racked to secondary and the  gravity only droped to 1.040.  i used the trappist high gravity 3787 from wyeast. i did not do a started, i pitched 1.5 pack  to each 5gal carboy. how should i go about getting the gravity down to 1.010 or lower?  thank you in advance.          nl
