If it tastes good after bottle conditioning your brew was a success.
As long as it was an EXTRACT kit and the volumes were correct - your OG is what it was advertised at.
DON"T take it now - as stated above - no real reason to, and a good way to infect your beer. it is really not "necessary" information - it is nice to have, but not critical to the outcome of your product.
