I've heard a number of cases where malt is good after an extended time, so my vote goes to giving it a try.

Thanks for the suggestions. None of it has been crushed as of yet. I'll take your advice and taste it...if it tastes good, I'm brewing this weekend.

I took the hiatus from brewing and focused on wine for something different. My wife is more of a wino than a beer guzzler, and I've got access to some excellent grapes here in central NY. Now that I've got my wine cellar stocked, its back to the brewing!
