Grain age

I bought the creamy stout extract kit from geterbrewed at the end of June


But stuff got in the way and I just haven't had time to brew it and likely won't get to it until the start of October. Will the grains be fine after this time? I re-packed them in a vacuum sealed bag, so they haven't been exposed to oxygen.

Brew or bin? I'm leaning towards brew but don't want to waste the other ingredients if the grain is past it.



Is there no best before date on it? All foodstuffs should have one printed somewhere.


No date. The 'bag' is just a piece of plastic that's been heat sealed to hold the grain. I vacuum sealed it when it arrived. Everything else in the kit is well dated, the extract, lactose, hops and yeast, just not the grain.
