I cant wait until its fully carbonated

This was defiantly worth the effort
Whaaat???? No TWANG?? But it's ten years old!! I can hear the TWANG!
TWANG! TWANG! from here! Like Gene Autry tuning up!

People report stuck fermentations on this group all the time, yet it
it's only when someone says they are using 10 year old extract that
they say it's due to the extract.

From the Briess web site:

"The other important note to make is that flavor differences between 2-Row and 6-Row malts are more detectable in lighter flavored, lightly hopped beers. When you don't have flavor masking by specialty malts or hops, that's when you may want to reach for 2-Row base malts. When a beer's flavor intensity is at about the level of an Oktoberfest or beyond, or when a beer is more heavily hopped, the difference between the two malts becomes negligible."

And likely true for "twang" as well.

Dude. 10 years old? Are you f'in kidding me? Throw that stuff out. Start with some fresh stuff. At least with fresh ingredients you can start on a level playing field.
