Could anyone give me some clues on how to estimate the final gravity of my wort. I realise that this depends on the ingredients used but if anyone has a guide on how different ingredients effect the FG I would appreciate your guidance. I work away from home a lot so have to sometimes rely on SG's over the phone, if I knew the estimated FG I could at least have an idea when I will be bottling.

Thanks

it depends also on the yeast u use as some attenuate more than others

"Homebrewing" by G Wheeler (CAMRA) goes into this in some detail.

A rule of thumb is FG=1/4 of OG

There is no simple answer to your question. Final gravity depends on your ingredients and yeast used.

Once your beer sg has been stable for 2-3 days, it is ready for bottling, but no harm will come to it, if it stays in primary for an extra week. Many kit brewers I know, leave it in the primary for 2 weeks, then bottle.
