    Using the calculator

    gives your OG at 1.040, which looks about right.
    You cannot have a beer SG of 0.002, so your reading is incorrect.
    I suggest you read your hydrometer 'how to use' instructions and/or following
    How to measure Specific Gravity using a Homebrew Hydrometer - The HomeBrew Forum
    and perhaps also test your hydrometer in clean water at about 20*C when it should read 1.000.

    my hydrometer certainly does not read 1.000.. just checked. i think its time i bought a new one.

    i'll re-test, and take OG as 1.04 as an estimate for a rough percentage. plus a bit of "Sup it and see"
