Can ABV go bad?

    I've searched a bit and found nothing. I have a big bag of old ABV. Months old. It's characteristic ABV popcorn aroma is long gone. But I don't smell anythingwrong in there. Is is safe to eat this old ABV? I now abv is dry, but is that enough for it to be edible for mohts/years? Can it get moisture back from the atmosphere? I store it in a medium sized zip-lock bag which I know is not perfectly air-proof.

    even if its been in a sealed jar for a month? it doesn't smell mouldy, but like seek said, it smells different.

    Just like any dry good, it needs to be kept away from excess humidity. It's pretty hardy overall and I never give it a thought, but if you know you stored it someplace damp and it smells musty, then you have to make that judgement call.

    definitely no damp or musty environment, I'm more concerned with the fact that it was completely sealed

    I wouldn't be. Again, you have to make the judgement call, but I don't store my AVB very well and I always use it with no issues. Just spread it out and have a look at it...maybe let it dry out in a very low oven and see how it smells then, if you want to be sure :)

    I'd say brownies, but check the forum out as there are tons of different ideas.:tup:
