I just brewed a super light blonde ale with 85% Pilsner malt about that age and it is very nice. You will be good!

Would you mind sharing your recipe for this super light blonde ale? I have about 30 lbs of 1 year old pilsen I also need to be working through.

Thanks for your reply

What about crushed grain in a sealed bag? I forgot about a kit I had ordered back in November with crushed grain. Will a taste test work?

See my post above. Mine was crushed the day I bought it. Put it away, and forgot about it for a little over a year. Figured I'd try brewing with it, and it came out just fine.

I missed the "crushed" part, thank you.

7 lbs 12 oz Pilsner malt
1 lbs wheat malt
4 oz mild malt (vienna would be a good sub)
.75 oz Saaz FWH
Magnum 60 min (I used .25 oz to hit 23 IBU)
.5 oz Saaz 5 minutes
US05 yeast

I mashed at 150 for 75 minutes and did a no sparge brew to hit an efficiency of 65%, 1.039 for 5.75G. Ferment in the mid 60s to get that extra clean flavor.
