Currently, uninstall support is very basic.

First, uninstall the Kiln website by going to Add/Remove Programs in the control panel. Find the one titled “Kiln 2.9 (Or whichever version you have)” or “Licensed Kiln” and uninstall it.

If you are not keeping your FogBugz install, use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it also. It is recommended that you do not remove the FogBugz user if you’re planning to reinstall FogBugz and/or Kiln on the same machine.

That’s all that you’ll need to do to remove Kiln and should allow it to be reinstalled in the future if you choose to try it out again, but there will be some leftover stuff that you can clean up if you want to.
