expired yeast, ok to use? possibly...definitely not??

I have a vial of expired WLP530 yeast. Its nearly 5 months expired. I was going to do a 2.5 litre starter 3 days before brew day and hope for the best. Does anyone think Im completely wasting my time or just wasting my time. Any opinions appreciated! It has been in the fridge the whole time.

Cheers

Final gravity got down to 1.012 so I was quite optimistic at bottling stage. Thats five weeks ago. Might the bitterness or ...
