MTS that's been sitting in a garage

I got some MTS from another local hobbyist. It's been sitting in the garage in a bag for a few months. I am guessing it's still fine to use, but wanted to make sure. Anyone see any problems?

I store it in 5gl pails in a shed.

It would not hurt to dump it out on a trap and take a look 1st. Could have bugs, sprouted seeds or mold. Just pick out what you don't want in your tank

Cool. I was planning on at last re-screening it to make sure. Sounds like I will be good to go.
