So if I take care of my sack by keeping it cool, dry and keeping the bugs away how long until it goes bad? Maybe stale?

I know... Until I use it all.

But seriously how long would this last?

Cheers

From what I've read on this board it will keep roughly a year in an airtight container uncrushed.

It won't last five months at my house though! I've got a few big beers planned!

Group buys are great if they are convenient. I'll take my spur of the moment $39 sack though. I just don't need the volume, headache, or the drive to meet up with my nearest group buy (about 200 miles away).

Awesome. Your sack size is dwarfing that of your instrument, though. Very unfortunate!

I bought 2 sacks of the same malt 2 weeks ago ($33 a bag as B&G had 15% off sale that day), i keep the grain in homedepo buckets ($4 with lid), they are air tight and stackable

I've never seen such a colorful sack as yours. The sacks I buy are in a plain brown paper sack with black lettering (Great Western Malting) I pay $50 for 50#. I store mine in two Home Depot "Homer" buckets.
