Default Og and fg

I'm reading a lot about knowing when tour beer is done by checking the fg. I know how to do it, why to do it, but what numbers am I shooting for for
Ales
Lagers
Porters
Stouts

Look at the bjcp style guidelines. Also look at the attenuation % of your yeast.

It's not that easy. It depends on the ration of fermentable to unfermentable sugar in your batch. If you are asking how many to shoot for in a style of beer the style guidelines have this. However there is no way to tell you what your porter (lager, stout, etc.) should have for fg without seeing the actual recipe and procedure. Some types of beer will finish in the 1.020s and others under 1.010.

I just remembered beer calculus does this for you but how accurate is it really? Can I use the og and fg from there and get in the ballpark ?
