As for abv - you could add 0.5 to 1lb of...

There's usually a pound or two of flaked corn (or rice) in a cream ale. I think if you bump that up and remove the carapils you'd be pretty good. You might even cut back a bit on the base malt too...

I would double check with a hydrometer, maybe the conversion you are using is off for this beer.

Have you tasted it? If it is sweeter than you expect, then you might be stuck. If you are, you...

Mashed at 165F ?

That's quite high, if it's not a typo you might be done.

Are you using a hydrometer (checked in water as Yooper suggested) or a refractometer?

I got a 23 on an IPA a bit over a year ago, I think a few of the bottles must have had a slow infection which led to some off flavors almost solvent like. Not a strong off taste, but clearly there.

Maltodextrin is only slightly fermentable, it depends a bit but in general only about 5%. So you'll need to reprime. You could pick up some carb drops at this point to reduce oxidation, though you...
