Thanks folks, thats the kind of input that is useful. Don't quite remember WHY I use a secondary...just got started that way years ago.
I always did worry about the glass letting in too much light among other things. Only good thing is that glass doesn't hold flavors over as bad as plastic.
Some of this stuff is getting pretty old and I don't know much about shelf life of either extracts which is why I was going to throw in the brown sugar as a fermentable......I just want to use up this stuff before it gets too old.....
Having said that, I am going to follow the above advice/recipe and make great beer
