hi.. just brewed my first batch a few days ago and now its in the primary..unfortunatly i didnt have my hydrometer at the time so i couldnt get and O.G, is it possible for a pro brewer to guesstimate the ABV or the O.G by looking at the recipe? if so here it is :

6# Pale Malt Extract
1# specialty grains
2oz cascade
fermentis dry yeast

just an update.... just got my new hydrometer.. but the kit above didnt come with any instructions...so i have no idea what the OG and FG should be... so if anyone can tell me what they think the O.G and the F.G should be(ballpark)

What were the specialty grains? 6 lbs of LME gives you a OG of about 1.054
