My buddy and I made a Gingerbread ale and on my batch my OG came out to be 1.095. My temp was 72% when I tested my OG. I am fairly new to brewing and that seems like a very high OG. What would cause this to happen?

Try putting your hydrometer in room temperature ideally distilled water. You should get a reading of 1.000 or if it's tap water, it should also read very close to 1.000. If it reads quite contrary to that, then your hydrometer is out.
