Mash temp was a pretty consistent 153F, but it does have 9% crystal malts. That may be it.

Believe it or not, 6 days later and the gravity has dropped 3 points to 1.019. Total time in primary is now a day shy of 4 weeks. What a lazy yeast... I'm going to swirl it slightly, let it sit another 3 days, and check again.
