Today A Coworker of mine approached me and asked if i would like his old beer kit he never used, so naturally i said sure!So i went to pick it up and it is a " Brewers Best :Beer ingredient Kit", im sure you have seen these little rectangular beer kits at your LHBS. Anyways this kit was for a "German Oktoberfest" beer and included allot of ingredients id like to use if they are still viable. The kicker here is that he has had the kit for two years just sitting so im wondering whats still good and what i should toss? ingredients are :
1. 6.6lb Munich Liquid malt extract
2. 1lb Amber Dry malt extract
3. straight off the package " Crushed Caramel 60 L 8oz. and 20 L 4oz Malt" (looks to be crushed grains. little confused with that labeling whats does the 4oz malt mean? As in it is mixed in with the crushed caramel?)
4. 2oz Willamette hops ( im assuming these are trash after being at room temp for 2 years)
5.packet of Brewferm Lager yeast ( which it says "it will also preform well if fermented at ale temperatures." im not sure if im buying into that? thoughts? possible liquid replacement suggestion?
6. 5oz priming sugar.
SOOOOOO... wondering whats good and whats turned to trash , everything is still in its original packaging unopened , thanks!
