Like others have said, any vessel that appears to be like the original. But if you don't have one and did an extract brew and feel like you did a good job, your OG from the recipe will probably be pretty close. If you were asking right before pitching, I have at times, just put it in the bucket. If you are already in fermentation wait a couple of weeks and check a few days apart to see if your brew stops fermenting. Nothing really to worry about, you'll remember next time now for sure. Good luck.
