It's around 1 point per 3oz. I think, so with 8oz. = roughly 3 points of gravity.

Yeah, nowhere near the extra I'm seeing even considering that this is a 4-gallon batch, not a 5. I'm gonna let it sit a week before checking gravity again and if it's done for serious I'm gonna dry-hop, leave it another week, and bottle. We'll see how it goes.
