I was getting my 22 oz bottles out of storage to get ready for my first non-Mr Beer extract brew and I found 2 22oz beers from Jan. of '07. could I get sick if i drink these? I see quite a bit of sediment/yeast on the bottoms of the bottles. I am curious to see what they taste like but I don't want to drink anything that may make me sick. I don't think I was overly cautious with making sure everything was sanitary when I was brewing with the Mr. Beer kit...

It might not taste good, but i doubt it would make you sick. As far as I know, there are no known pathogens that can survive in beer. I have tried 5+ year old bottles of homebrew and I am still here to tell the tale.

I would save one of them so you can taste what you used to make with Mr. Beer compared to what you make now with your increased skills.

You'd better report back to this thread after you've drank them. I'm interested to hear your review of them.

Get ready for some oxidation flavors, but otherwise you are golden. Nothing that can live in beer can make you the least bit sick or come close to killing you. Thank you alcohol and alpha acids.

It could make you sick if you drink 12 - 22ozers

I tried the beer tonight. It was surprisingly good. Very clear but had little carbonation. After swallowing it had quite a bite to it. Overall...not too bad.
