Default Break fluid storage and use

Hey guys

I did a break fluid flush awhile back and used half a gallon of the fluid (always put more than I need into the pressure feed) on my E90 M3.

I am do for another flush and want to use the remaining half. It was stored with the cap on in the garage. I had someone tell me a long time ago that once it sits it can develop condensation and go bad... thoughts?

Itís probably fine as long as you kept it tightly sealed. Itís only moisture you are worried about and the can should only allow the moisture that entered it (when you poured out half the can) in the air to contaminate the brake fluid. I wouldnít use it after a couple of years.
