No green fuzz.And sealed tight.Think its any good ?
All I can say give it a try. I have beer that's in the bottles for longer than that with no problems. If its sealed in bottles or keg and carbonated it should be fine. If it taste good have a party.

Oh man! I was just down in the basement looking at my equipment sitting unused, and the ingredients I have in stock to make several batches. I'm too lazy to do it, yet I go out and purchase better brews?

And you guys embarrass me to get off my duff!

If your ingredients is more than a year old don't waste your time it won't be any good. If the ingredients is part liquid malt extract forget it. It may ferment and you will have a bubbling airlock but the wort will turn black and the only thing its good for is dumping down a gopher hole. Buy new the ingredients and get busy.

In the early 90's I brewed, and brewed. Put a lot of peaches in the batches - tried a few other fruits as well, but things like apples made it too acidic for my tastes. I don't remember how high I took the ABV up, but certainly pushing 15% = those were my goals then.

My favorite imported beer was Samichlaus Classic Bier, an ABV of 14%, and as tasteful as heaven as far as beer drinking goes. And powerful kick. So I modeled my beer making after that - just loved the taste.

My Daddy was a bootlegger = moonshine. Used to carry cases to and from his stash sites, dropped a case once - suffered consequences of that. But never carried anymore cases for him. My stepfather was an alcoholic. He died in a car crash, driving drunk.

I had one six pack of my latest brew remaining, and while I was at work my stepfather came up to where I lived in Ohio. A hot July day, and when I walked in the door from work I went straight for my fridge for a bottle, and they were all gone :(

I walked out to my deck, and my stepfather was propped up in the corner of my deck, with a stream of drool all the way down to the deck flooring. I can understand him drinking it all because it tasted so good!

Then I took a job in Detroit, made another batch and all the bottles started exploding - I'd failed in the sanitary needs. That was '94 and I haven't made a batch since.

There's no further excuse for getting back into brewing except laziness, and it is work intensive.

But it tasted so good!
