Just pulled out ten year old mash tuns, kettles and carboys. Any reason these cant be revived? I am hoping with some major elbow grease I can sanitize and get everything working... Thoughts?

Shouldn't be any problem, I've reused old equipment many times.. good PBW/Oxyclean soak and some starsan for the carboys and you should be good! Might want to replace any hoses you have tho since they're cheap and probably are hard and cracking after 10 years and if you keg replace the rubber o-rings and throw some keg lube on them at the same time.
