For these more evolved Sun-like stars we cannot detect surface rotation with the current Kepler data but instead use the technique of asteroseimology to determine rotational properties of both 16 Cyg A and B. We find the rotation periods to be 23.81.5-1.8 and 23.211.5-3.2 d, and the angles of inclination to be 566-5 ° and 3617-7 °, for A and B, respectively. Together with these results we use the published mass and age to suggest that, under the assumption of a solar-like rotation profile, 16 Cyg A could be used when calibrating gyrochronology relations. In addition, we discuss the known 16 Cyg B star-planet eccentricity and measured low obliquity which is consistent with Kozai cycling and tidal theory. Description: Both 16 Cyg A and B are brighter (V∼6) than the saturation limit for which Kepler observations were designed. However, it was possible to capture the full stellar flux by using custom photometric aperture masks. Thus, 928 d of short-cadence observations (Gilliland et al. 2010ApJ...713L.160G) - from Quarter 7 to 16 - were generated using simple aperture photometry (Jenkins et al. 2010ApJ...713L..87J) and then corrected for instrumental perturbations following the methods described by Garcia et al. (2011MNRAS.414L...6G). The final light curves used for asteroseismic analyses were high-pass filtered using a triangular smooth of 4 d width and have a duty cycle of 90.5 per cent. The power density spectra were computed using a Lomb-Scargle algorithm.
