Default Caribou Slobber FG???

Will be brewing my Northern Brewer Caribou Slobber extract kit tomorrow. The instructions tell me my OG should be 1.052 but I couldn't find any info. on what FG I should be shooting for. I plan to let this one sit in primary for 4 weeks, so I'm sure it will get there, but wanted to see from those who have brewed this kit what FG's you all were getting. I'll be using Wyeast 1332 from a 1.5 liter starter.

THANKS!!

My OG was right on at 1.052 and my FG was finished at 1.020 (dry yeast) after three weeks in the primary. It is tasty, enjoy!

With an OG of 1.052 I didn't use a starter, just the smack pack. My final gravity got down to 1.014 after 2 weeks.

It is quite good, I believe I'm down to the final couple of pints from my keg.

Cheers

Yes I believe that's what it's supposed to be.

As others have said, that is what it's supposed to be. It's a great brew.

I want to say mine finished around 1.014-1.016. It was my second brew and turned out great. I had a few that I just drank last week after being in bottles for almost 3 months and they just get better (as all beers seem to do).

Thanks all!!! My OG was 1.051. I ended up slightly over 5 gallons after my boil. Been fermenting away since yesterday afternoon at 68 degrees. Going to primary for 4 weeks and give this one at LEAST 4 weeks in the bottle. I have 54 bottles of a Fat Tire clone bottle conditioning now, so I hope I can make it.

OG was 1052, honestly didn't check the FG... but it turned out pretty solid, just a little too bitter.

Anyone else having issues with NB kits being too bitter? For my IPAs I don't mind but my NB Fat Tire and Caribou were just a tad too bitter. I do 3 Gallon boils.
