Flour has a shelf life

I don't know how many of you are unaware as I was of this fact. I had bread failure after failure using old flour that we had bought in a large quantity, many years ago. I was looking for answers all over the 'net until I found the King Arthur's Flour website and got educated. I bought some new flour and had instant success. Another revelation is that the old flour is excellent for pizza dough as it doesn't rise as much as fresh.
Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks.
