ok, batch number 4 is in primary, a wildflower wheat, and the brew night went very smoothly, except for the fact that I forgot to take my OG before pitching my yeast. I shook the carboy to aerate, pitched yeast, shook a couple more times, and then moved to my closet. As I was getting ready to put the blowoff tube into the carboy, I realized that I did not take a gravity reading!!! so I dropped my wine thief in the bucket of star-san that my blowoff tube end was about to go into, and stole a sample. OG is 1.057 and BeerSmith predicted an OG of 1.056, so I'm thinking the pitching before taking a gravity reading isn't a big deal.
Everything I've read has always said to take the OG before pitching, but since beersmith perfectly predicted my OG, is this really that big of a deal and is my OG reading off?
Figures that this is also the first brew I've made where I've had homebrew to enjoy while brewing it
