I kicked off a wildly out of date (2008) brew from a kit a few weeks ago. ( One of those kits with a packet of yeast and 2 large tins of goop.)
The brewing didnt go as well as I've had them go previously, but there was some pressure under the brew bucket lid.
Anyway I checked the hydrometer and it seemed ok. So I barrelled it with the extra bit of sugar too.
However a week or so later there's no pressure at all in the barrel.
So, I guess should I:
a) Decant back to the bucket and try again with another packet of yeast? b) give up and get a kit that is in date? :)
