I purchased a bunch of grain about 18 months ago. I ended up not using it all before I left on deployment. It ended up in a non climate controlled storage unit for a few months there toward the end. There is about 25-30 lbs left and I'd hate to have to trash it all... Think it's any good?

Dry and not milled and I would think it would be good.
Grain gets stored for long times before the end user gets it.

Still looks and feels right. Dry and unmilled. It's all in plastic bags and in a Tupperware container. I've opened a few up and didn't see any bugs in there. I think I'll just brew a batch and see what happens...

I think it's bad. PM me for my address and I'll dispose of it properly.

Just doing my duty.
