Epoxy shelf life

I bought a CLC kit a couple of years ago. Children, work and general hectic life prevented me from building the boat in as timely a fashion as I would have liked. The hull is complete, with fillets and I am finally ready to start fiberglassing. I have heard different views on shelf life of epoxies. I have MAS epoxy and it has always been stored at room temperature. Is two years too long? Do any of you have experiences with this issue? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.
