Default How long are grains good?

I purchased grain in May, had it milled, and then moved before I could use it. It has been sealed in two plastic bags, inside of a sealed bucket, in my basement (never above 72 F) since then. My basement is finally starting to cool down and I hope to brew some beer soon. Is this grain still viable? Any adjustments that I should make?

Thanks.

Paul

Six months is no problem for whole grains, may be a little long for milled grain. Brew it up and have some dme on hand if the gravity is not where it needs to be.

Cheers!

Sounds like a good plan. If I end up with a lower gravity beer, I am good with that. If I end of with a poor quality beer, I am not.

I guess this is another good reason to have my own mill.
