Default Can I take gravity of a carbed beer?

Do it being carbed affect the FG? I also kegged and carbed a beer and forgot to take the FG. Can I still do it?

Thanks all.

Carbonation doesn't change the gravity, but the bubbles can mess up your reading. Just de-gas the sample by pouring it back and forth between two glasses until it stops foaming.

OK. I took a sample last night and let it sit in the tube over night. I assume that got all the bubbles out. Thanks.
