Default Starting Gravity Question

I have a quick question I hope someone can answer or at least give me a good estimation.

This is my 8th brew so far. But anyway, my issue is this, when I siphoned my hot wort into my primary fermenter the temperature was about 102 degrees F and the SG was 1.032. After a day's cooling I forgot to take a REAL SG measurement and just pitched my yeast. I didn't realize it until a few days after fermentation started so I figured I missed my opportunity.

Given the prior SG reading of a hot wort, can I find an ACTUAL (or best estimate) SG? Is there a formula for finding it at such a hot reading?

Thanks

There's no formula, but there are tables.

ProMash says the corrected reading should be 1.038 if your hydrometer is calibrated at 60deg.

Tables.

I should have known. I created a formula in my beer tracker excel sheet that calculates but it's not correct. Maybe I can adapt this table to the sheet.

Thanks much!
