If partial boil extract brewing, know that it is difficult to completely mix the boiled wort with the top-off water, which will give you a false reading on the hydrometer.
It is safe to assume the calculated OG is more accurate than the measured OG if you followed the recipe directions correctly (right amount of extract and batch size).
Once it starts fermenting, it will all mix together, then you can trust your hydrometer readings.
