I just punched your number into a calculator I use, upped yhe batch size to 6 US gallons, which is equivilant to 5 UK gallins and you should have an OG of 1.040-1 with a 75% efficiency.
however if I leave it at 5 US gallons it says 1.049-50.

Don't forget that British Gallons are larger than American gallons also when using a recipe from this site.
One British Gallon is 1.2 American so use approx 4.2 gallons of water to an American 5 gallon recipe.
Looks like somebody beat me to it.

As a point of interest, your efficiency from the session mentioned in post 21 would be about 65% if the US to imperial gallons problem was sorted out.

That's a little bit low, but quite acceptable for starting out. I'm sure your efficiency will increase as you get more familiar with the process.

There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.
