Shooting Tmax 3200 Expired in 2000

I have about 6 tolls of Tmax 3200 that expired in 2000. It's been in the freezer all that time.
I'm going to shoot a roll tomorrow night.
Any suggestions on what speed I should rate it at?
Any other suggestions? Processing tips?

Thanks,
Matt

I would not bother.

Tmax 3200 loses significant speed as it ages and suffers extremely high fog levels from natural background radiation due to its high speed. I have used Tmax 3200 that was only a couple years out of date and the image quality was horrible. 18 year old Tmax 3200 will be very, very bad.

Freezing does not stop this film's aging at all.

I rated similar film at 200 ASA, but a Chris mentioned you have to like grain and fog. If you want a really dirty look ...

Ricoh FF-1, film expired 2005, exposed @200ASA, Rodinal 1+50, 22 min.

prepare for images coarse as wall paper, and if you're looking for cleaner images, get something else

I have had a similar experience with Delta 3200 expired just a couple years or so. Too much coarse grain fog.

Thanks.
I forgot I have the Delta, too.
Well, maybe I'll try it at 200 someday, but not tonight.
