Well I'm drinking my first beer from the batch made from mostly old ingredients and I have to say not bad but I've had better. It is a little dry and with the addition of the extra pound of LME, came out with 6.75 ABV. I still have some left from my first brew which was an IPA that had fresh ingredients and had an ABV of 5.75. I actually like that one better. Hopefully it will improve with age. Time to brew an Irish Stout tomorrow. Looking forward to it. This will be my third brew. What a great hobby!
