Default Crushed Grains - Refrigerator?

Wondering if you guys would store your crushed grain in the Refrigerator... assuming that you had the supplier crush your grains before shipping.
Thanks!

You want to use them fairly quick though, crushed grains lose their freshness fast!

Eh, If i know im going to use them like the next day I usually just toss em in the fridge myself. I never bother with zippies if its in the near-future that they will be used. Either way, it'll do that trick.

I find a plastic garbage bag (kitchen size) works well...just tie up the top and stick it in the fridge.

I haven't ponied for a BC yet, so I buy my grains crushed. B3 does a pretty good job, but I still need my own. I just store mine in ziplocks with the air squeezed out and put them in the freezer. I figure the colder temp will give me a little longer longevity. Hopefully

Or freezer if you have the space. Just let them warm up before brewing or your mash-in temperature will be off.
