Ok. I just noticed you were in AZ. I used to live there and the hard water can cause problems with mash pH. High mash pH can cause grainy / tannic flavors.

Water supply pH can vary over the year....

Looks like you need a taller cylinder :)

What are the details on your batch? It's pretty tough to miss by that much. It's most likely a broken hydrometer.

None of what you described will cause any problems.
