Hello all long times no brews.

So its been a while since ive brewed a batch or two, persuing other things; women etc.

i have brought back the old 3ves from the dead today and was looking at putting one down this weekend. - if i can remember how to do it !!!!
something about mixing warmish water 40c with malted corn etc.

so to the juicy stuff:

i have also came across around 10kgs of ale malt and the same in choc with about 5kgs of dark..- my main brew before was the stout, a real mans drink.
the grain is about a year old, been stored in air tight containers with moister eaters, smells great and mills fine with no signs of rats nor mice inside it.

not that i want to be a cheap bastar, craftbrewer is 20 mins north, but what do.you think yhe chances are ??

of course my fellow beernaughts i would be buying fresh hops and yeast !!!

thanks for your input wise men.

-cant find spell check.

If its only a year old it should be fine.

As above, uncracked grain stored well will be good after a year, but chew on some to see if it tastes fresh.
