Didn't Measure OG, Can Someone Help Me Estimate?

Recommended Posts

I started a brew last Sunday using the Canadian Blonde mix.  I boiled 4 cups of water and added the extract and then I also added 8.5 oz of dextrose (corn sugar) to the wort.  I did not take an OG because I broke my hydrometer.  I am using this Canadian blonde to make a sour, so today I added the lactobacillus to the mix with an addition of 8 oz more dextrose dissolved in water for a volume of 17.5 oz (roughly).  I bought a new hydrometer and measured the gravity today after the additions and got 1.024.  Can anyone possibly tell me what my OG was roughly?

Also, after a week with the lactobacillus, I plan to add canned blood orange to the beer for the final week of fermentation.  When I take the FG when I am ready to bottle, will that even be useful since I have added more fermentables to the beer?

Programs like QBREW let you figure OG.  Your additions can also be added in, although the can of fruit is problematic due to unknown sugar count.
