Is there anything wrong with buying and crushing your grain to prepare for a brew the next day?
I guess I'm concerned about efficiency being affected or some other chemical change taking place while the crushed grain sits for 18 hours or so.
some of mine sits for a month or more, but I keep it in an air tight container too.
Absolutely no problem. The day before is the latest I ever crush. Often it's several days or a week.

Cool thanks! This will take 45 minutes off my brew day
Same here, have my LHBS crush mine as I don't have a mill, and have ordered kits from NB precrushed and have brewed 2 weeks or so later. No issues that I can tell.
Crush while your strike water is heating Or I measure hops and crush night before. Cheers
I used to hate crushing my grain with my hand crank barley crusher. I got tired of it so I motorized it and now a 10lb grist bill takes a couple of minutes and it's fun to watch.
you can store crushed grain in the freezer, too, if it's going to be more than a couple days
I've had my LHBS crush grains and it sat for a couple of weeks before I used it...no problems here!
