Is it too old for soap? Looks and smells fine.

I did the same. I also took the risk of tasting it and it was fine so I used it. So far, no DOS or any issues 3-6 months in.

If you are using it to dissolve the lye, then it should heat up enough to destroy mold or bacteria.

Right here, silly!
I've got some in my fridge that's almost a year old, too, and it's been soaping fine for me. It looks, smells and tastes just fine, too.

Aloe gel lasts a very long time too. I had a bottle close to 10 years old I bet and it still smelled fine, looked fine, and felt very fine on burns! I know it was past the expiration date. I finally threw it out on principle, once I remembered to buy another bottle. It was mostly pure gel with a couple other things in there that I can't remember (a preservative maybe ;)
