Long story short, there's an old brewery that closed down, and there are 55lb bags of unmilled malt and a few bags of vacuum sealed hops. I'm assuming they are no good, I think the brewery closed down in 2006, and these things were left behind, but just out of curiosity I wanted to know what might happen if I brewed a batch with these ingredients. Anyone ever done anything similar? Thanks!

I figure it's no loss if I brew a batch, all I would have wasted is time haha, thanks!

2006? That is a long time. 2016 I’d say go for it.
