Default how long do supplies last

I have a grain / extract kit that is about 8 months old. Hops and yeast have been in fridge the whole time and grain in a bag. Are they still good to brew with?

i'd replace the yeast, or at least make a starter to check it's viability. but the grains and hops should be good to brew with if they've been stored like that.

If the yeast is liquid, I would make a starter. If the yeast is dry I think it would be fine. The rest of the ingredients should be good to go.

Check the use by date on the yeast. all else should be fine. Cheers
