Life got crazy, and just never found the time to bottle. I've had my first brew in Mr. beer for almost 8 weeks. Is it ruined?

You have nothing to lose. Bottle it and taste it. If it's no good, wait another month before tasting the next batch. Most likely you're ok. What kind of brew was it?

It's probably fine. Proceed as planned.
