Default OG is what?

I brewed a Williams Brewing Belgian Harvest Ale today, but it doesn't list what the OG should be. Here is what I got after brewing, before adding the yeast. Does anyone know if this is the correct OG for this beer? Thanks for the info.

Their website says 1.058. You are good to go.

Yes, the web site says 1.058. Your hydrometer looks like a bit over 1.050. The difference could be explained by temperature, a slightly inaccurate hydrometer, inadequate mixing of the top off water, or a combination of these things. As it is an extract brew, your real O.G. should be very close to the specified figure.

Yep, it's 1.060. Possibly 1.062. Looks like wort to me.

Doh!
The 60 looked like 50 to me. I didn't notice that there is another 50 mark.

Sorry,

Me too! I thought- wow. He has two 1.050's on his hydrometer. But the second "50" is a "60", I see now.

You're at 1.060. Perfect.

Thanks for the replies, now the wait begins. This has to be the hardest part, waiting 2+ weeks.
