We have inherited a years supply of wheat. Some as old as 30 years. Our friends tell us that it is no good or will taste bad. We haven't noticed a difference or much of one between our 30 year old wheat and our 2 year old wheat. One thing we do is add wheat germ and sometimes gluten into our bread recipe. Could restoring the germ or gluten be the reason our wheat doesn't taste old?
I don't think so. I imagine your wheat is still good. Wheat has an amazing shelf life. If the wheat is good to begin with and stored under the right conditions it can probably last 50 years.
If there are no weevils I'd keep using it!
