Your plan sounds good to me though.
I bet some of the AG guys would know though, I suspect they'd say if it's not fuzzy and/or bitter it's fine.
But again, I know not of what I speak, besides Ergot is a fungus that infects rye, and can cause hallucinations.
sounds like more than i could handle....i just want a buzz. hallucinating sounds a bit much. worst comes to worst i gotta fork out 5 bucks to get 4lbs of rye
ive been doing AG for about 6-8 months but ive always used my grain within 2 weeks of milling/buying them. so this is a new question to me.... rye is flaked if that makes any real difference, which besides in the mash i doubt that it does.
