how long does stock keep in the frig?

mschow | Oct 4, 200811:43 AM     37

I made some homemade chicken stock 2 weeks ago and have not used it all up. It's been refrigerated and kept in a ceramic container in the frig. How long will this stay good, or is it already spoiled? It still smells good, but I'm still a little uncertain about the shelf life of stock. I would have frozen it, but my freezer is completely full right now. Do I chance eating this, or am I just being paranoid about food safety?
