I bought a mini mash IPA recipe from More Beer about 2 years ago. Due to some crazy circumstances the ingredients (except the yeast) have been sitting in garage for almost 2 years. The ingredients are:

8 lbs of ultralight in a sealed plastic package
Grain mix of Munich, 2-row, crystal, and carapils in a sealed plastic bag
Cascade, willamette, and liberty hop pellets all in sealed plastic pouches

Is there any chance these are all still good?

It's worth a try. I had a kit that was over a year old and it turned out to be fantastic!

if the grains were cracked and the hops not frozen - in my opinion they will be of little use.
the light DME should be useable

I'm sure it will be fine. It's not like you have anything to lose right?

Well, he does have the extract to lose... it is probably still good...

I'd replace the hops and grain...
