    Hi all,

    Might be moving house so did a big clean up. Found a Kegking fresh wort kit hiding under some junk that I purchased about 18 months ago. Is it still safe to ferment?

    If the junk it was under was keeping out the light it will be fine, if it wasn't it will still be drinkable.

    Yep kept inside a cupboard away from light or heat.

    Will get it a whirk but will probably dry hop in case it's "stale"

    Cheers!
