Sounds like this could be attributed to the IBUs of everyone's wort

23 ounces of hops seems insane for 5 gallons. In my opinion, if you employ certain techniques,
such as moving all your hops to a hop stand (except the bittering charge) at the right
temperature, dry h...

When did you take your sample for gravity and where was it pulled from? Your wort might not
