    my roommate just gave me a 5lb bottle of ON gold standard whey, but he got it last summer and opened it. he hasn't used it since, and the bottle has been shut the entire time

    the expiration date is 2009, but did it go bad since he opened it a long time ago?

    general consensus is that it may have lost some of its nutrients (less protein per amount) but it will be OK. I'm sure it's fine, plus it's free.

    sounds good... i think the main reason i ask is because when i used to use water bottles for protein and find them randomly around my house a few days later, they always smelled fucking horrible... figured maybe some moisture that couldve gotten into the bottle after opening made it go bad

    he also gave me some glutamine and celltech he has... i dont think ill fuck with the celltech but definitely in on the glutamine

    Look at it. Smell it.

    If there are things growing inside, you maybe shouldn't make a shake out of it.
