I ferment in glass carboys, and I just bottled a Pliny the elder clone that was dry hopping in

So it appears there was another underlying issue here. I opened a bottle yesterday to see if
the off flavor had diminished at all and it turned out to be a gusher. It tasted just as bad,
if not worse,...

I had the LHBS crush my grain and I asked for it a little finer, but maybe they crushed it too
fine. I used the calculator on brewer's friend for gypsum additions. It was 12g for 8.5 gallons

I just recently bottled a chocolate chipotle stout and my recipe was similar to yours minus the

It does have a freezer, but it wasn't an issue, I just removed the shelf directly underneath

I just made a cal common a few weeks ago and it's still in the fermenter. I left it at 60F for
4 days, then bumped it up to 68F for 3 days. I checked the gravity after that and it had
dropped from 1.0...
