Just curious. My LHBS keeps their LME in bulk under nitrogen to keep it fresh. I am brewing a beer now, new castle clone from AHS. How do I know how fresh their LME is, taste, smell???
Good judgement comes from experience, experience comes from bad judgement.
Good question. I think you would see off colors or mold or clumpy.
The LME I've got from them seemed fresh. I'd imagine they have a real quick turnover and go through alot... they are a big place
It usually has a stamped date on the can somewhere.
