The yeast was Fermentis T-58 Ale Yeast from the kit. SG was 1.061, just below the higher end as listed on the kit.

Thanks all for the feed-back. I took a reading today and am just as confused at before. It read at 1.20 which is 0.15 higher than what the AGR is rated at on the kit's instructions. My OR was higher than on the instructions too but I thought it was a mix of my hand shaking quite a bit and my inexperience.

thanks. I will take a gravity reading over the weekend. This is worse than when I was developing my first roll of film.

So for a first timer, I could just leave the carboy in its box, stick with the bucket, and not be confused :-)

Baka - I had planned on it as that is what I thought I needed to do.
