I was given a hopped lme porter kit for free. I noticed that the kit says use before october 2009, and that the lid is bulging.
With that said should i even bother with this kit, or should i just toss it?
I recently just stepped up to partial mashes and have been having better results than extract kits, but i figured a free kit is a free kit.
I know the bulging is a sign that the kit has gone bad, but does that mean it might just have off flavors, or is it going to get someone sick like a bulging can at a grocery store?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
