Did you measure by weight or by volume? As noted in the recipe weight is much more accurate. The difference is largely due to how tightly the flour is packed. Think how sifting loosens the flour.

Also the amount of water retained in the flour can vary due to relative humidity differences. The season can cause a large difference in water retained.
