I have a couple of Brewers Best kits that have been stored in a garage for the past six months. Will these still be good? Temps probably got to the upper 80s to 90s in the garage during the summer. I know I need to replace the yeast but will the sugar and hops still be usable?

Thanks!

I would replace the hops. they should be kept in the freezer, and the temp swings that they have been exposed to will probably make them junk. The malt extract may have darkened but should be ok to ferment as long as it hasn't been compromised and exposed to the air.
