Default Help Decode This Muntons LME can date code

I've seen this thread:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f39/extr...untons-140319/

Which says to use the last 4 numbers after the XB number.

Mine are 2318. So 18 days into the year, but what does 23 mean? 2013? So 01/18/13.

This is a Brewers Best Cream Ale kit.

I would guess the first number indicates the year and the last 3 are the day of that year. So yours would be the 318th day of 2012, which is November 14th.

Sorry for all the edits, feeding the baby right now.

Hope that isn't too old. 5-6 months old.
