It can handle it, but when I am making something that big, I usually want a more pronounced yeast effect, rather than the ultra clean profile that I get from 001, so again, I do not think the yeast was the problem. What temps did you hold/use for fermentation? Can you hold the temp steady enough to eliminate big swings in wort temp?

I would say it was a grist issue just off the top of my head based on my experiences with WLP001, regularly getting 78-82% attenuation rather than the 57% you have, although I have not used it in that big of a beer before.

That ton of chocolate and roasted grains will not yield the same fermentability as your base malts and will tend to yield a higher FG. Post the recipe specs when you can and everyone can help trouble shoot it for you

I used the calculator and got the same results as Big Monk. As he stated, more info on your recipe, yeast, and fermentation schedule can better help us to help you

His default wort correction factor of 1.040 is generally a good place to start if you dont know your exact WCF, Big Monk can likely explain obtaining that number a little better than I can

That current reading is skewed due to the alcohol present, while the SG was not skewed (no alcohol yet) the calculator from Sean will use a wort correction factor based on starting gravity to give a better estimate of actual final gravity.

Also, what did your grist look like? High levels of unfermentables from caramel or roasted malts will yield a higher FG. And to answer the last question, yes. If you are only using the refractometer, it will give a skewed result due to the presence of alcohol. The calculator will be based off of starting hydro and refract readings. I am sure someone will post a link to Sean Terrill's online calculator

Is your gravity stable? Have you taken multiple readings over a number of days? This is the only real way to know if it is done. Also, with your numbers in °Brix, it seems you may be using a refractometer for your readings. If so, you do need to use a calculator to estimate SG, and may also require starting readings with both hydrometer and refractometer.

Big Monk said you will make alcohol with your stated ingredients; it has also been said that not many here are interested in trying it once finished.

And btw, I am also growing Marijuana and Tobacco, Peppers and a bunch of other stuff. This is just something I am doing on the side.

And if any of you want to take my ideas, go for it. I know that you all realize that this is all good stuff, and you are just trolling.

Brewing 55 gallons of bad beer, wine, or cider before you can brew 5 gallons of decent stuff is not a good idea.  Good luck, but you're putting the cart before the horse.
