gel battery

We changed our single gel battery got 2 new 85 amp gels in place. The initial, original(1 year old) gel battery was perfectly good but has now been in a cold, damp garage for over a year. My question is will it now be any good, should i try to revive it as i havnt got a charger, or will it need disposing of. From reading on here it appears that the general consensus of opinion is that we should have replaced the single gel with 2 new lead acids, but its done now.

If its stored charged then it should be OK. As has been suggested check the terminal voltage. If its 12 or above you have a good chance its a goodun.
If its stored in a discharged state then its cream crackered.

Is that straightforward enough?


Thanks, Clive, will check at the weekend.
