stuck fermentation

boris4:
i did a wheat beer with 10 lbs of flaked wheat. my fermentation got stuck at 1.040. og was 1.084. is this because I used the flaked wheat or is it just going to take a lot longer? ???

greatplainsbrewer:
Have never had problems fermenting flaked wheat but 10 lbs is a lot- 5 gal batch?  Strong beer too- did you pitch a sufficient amount of yeast?  What yeast strain/ temp?

tschmidlin:
What was your total grist, and what was your mash temp/time?  Flaked wheat can not self convert so if you did not have enough enzymes in the mash you would need an extra long mash to get good conversion.

reverseapachemaster:
I'm also thinking the problem here is not a stuck fermentation but that you have too much starch in the beer.

This^^^^^

If the entire grist was flaked wheat, there was no conversion.
