Honestly if the dude had to make a call to see which crystal malts he had and had the hops sitting at room temp, I would try to find ingredients elsewhere. I know that's not helpful if you don't have much around but it sounds like you're not getting anything close to fresh.

At worst, if you had to order online you could buy in larger amounts and probably save in the long run.

Edit: Bah, old thread for the lose.

Well, it's old but not irrelevant.

The last time I didn't have the option to order online since I didn't have time to wait around for things to be shipped. I don't have a fermentation chamber, so I rely on my apartment keeping an ambient temperature of 18C. If I'd waited much longer, I would have missed my window.

I'm about to buy some malts for my next batch and I will not be going back to him. I'll just have to pay for shipping.

It was OK. I should have bumped up the late hop additions. It would have had more of the fruity flavor.
if you re-brew this i would cut down on the crystal malts. you're slightly over 20%, which is the max you want in most brews. since you want to be featuring the hops here, i would have cut them down to 10% and used more base malt. also, 10% oats is a little on the high side. i would have aimed for 5% max.
