Update: 20 Is still going strong for me on the grinder. Still making acceptable coffee...Even though It's not a full bodied coffee :/ I stirred at around 3:50 and plunged at 4 minutes and I ended the plunge around 4:23. Planning to stir at 4 minutes and plunge until 4:30. I didn't have much resistance which probably was because I stirred the coffee right before the plunge...

That's backward.
Stirring right before the plunge would stir up the grinds & would make it more difficult to plunge.

It's easier to plunge if the coffee has been sitting till the end of the steep undisturbed.

Well seeing as you stirred right before you plunged Barrett, that tells me that your grind is still on the coarse side &/or inconsistant.
