Not sure about the OP, but my OG was 1.062 and my FG was 1.018 for an ABV of about 5.6%. Perhaps I didn't stir enough after topping off with the last 2 gallons of water, because I thought that my OG was a little low. Anyway, I'm not sure it is a true RIS, but it was tasty at bottling. I'm looking forward to next week when I am going to sample one (I know that it is a bit early, but I like to know how the beer is progressing).
About the kit - don't know where the OP got his, but I just went to my LHBS and picked up the ingredients.
