Default Left malt extract in car overnight!

Oops! Picked up a new kit just yesterday, and somehow left the malt extract in the car overnight. I was half expecting it to have explode d out o its 1/2 gallon jug and oozed all over the carpet, but luckily no!

But question is, with 95 degree temps at 8 pm last night, is this LME no good? (figure 12 hours at an average of 90 degrees prob)

I usually keep it refrigerated till brewing. I plan in brewing tomorrow night. Thinking I should get some fresh LME

It probably got a lot hotter than that being shipped in a trailer from the mfg to the brew shop. That type of product isn't hauled in refrigerated trailers

Haha! Bob beat me to it by a few seconds. Hey Bob, 3hrs north of ya.

Sugar is a preservative. Nothing can survive in that concentration of it.

Don't forget that they make the stuff by heating wort and boiling off the water. I wouldn't store extract at 100F+ for weeks, as it will darken, but a day or two is no problem.

Extract, no problem. Liquid Yeast might be a problem. +1 to "Brew, Drink, be happy".
