It doesnt' explain your low OG after chilling, but any reading above 100 degrees is useless (even though you can convert the reading with software). You have to cool the reading to 90 degrees or less in pitcher of ice water, and THEN convert the reading.
next time, cool the sample and then take the reading and correct from there.
Readings over 100 degrees are notoriously inaccurate, and so are useless.
