I have a Baltic Porter NB Extract kit, it has been in the primary for 9 days.
Original gravity was 1071, gravity now is 1026.
My plan is to leave it for a 4 more days then put in clearing carboy and leave it there for a 2 to 3 weeks.
What can I expect for a final gravity, the kits do not say, it has dropped a few points over the last 3 days.

Thanks for the help.

Yeast was Wyeast #2112 California lager yeast.
The kit says apparent attenuation: 67 - 71% optimum temp 56 - 68.
Temps have been around 62-64 in my basement.

Thanks for the reply,

Yeah, it may still have a few points left... but it is close! My stout is in its second week in the primary, going to secondary in 4 days. MMMM I cannot wait to swipe a taste!

Thanks, I'll remember that formula, and give the beer some more time.
