Picked up a box of brewing supplies the other day July 30th in this kit was an LBK and a box of two of the Mr. Beer hopped extracts. An American ale and Patriot lager. Looking at the dates they were best by 2015 and it's now 2022. I'm the adventurous type so I decided not only to make the two kits but to combine them and add some LME to boost them. on July 31st I boiled 5 cups of water added one cup of lme till dissolved then added both cans of hopped extract. I tried to use the included yeast but it never took off, thus I added a packet of ale yeast. and its happily bubbling away in the corner of the Closet as I wanted to watch this one in 14 days I'm going to bottle it and see how it came out.
