I have a batch where I used us-05 with OG on 1.061 it is only down to 1.024 after 16 days.
Can this be right?

It could be. Or it could be incorrect.

In order to tell you for sure, we'd need to know the ingredients, the mash temperature, and if you took the reading with a refractometer or a hydrometer.

Ingredients are a huge part of why FGs finish where they do, so without knowing that no one can say.

Post your recipe and we may be able to help. Without knowing ingredients, mash temp etc. it's just impossible.

66C = 151 F Mash temp.

That is a low mash temp but your grist is made up of malts that do not attenuate as highly as base malts so that may have something to do with it.

What temperature are you fermenting at?

EDIT: I wish I had Amarillo hops to waste as bittering hops!
