Default storing grain

I do not know but I would say like anything else high heat would not be good for storage . I store mine in freezer but I suspect that fridge would be good . Grain is stored in elevators for a year or two with no problems . they surely get quite hot in summer .

Go here to read up on grain storage problems .. http://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/AED/AED-20.html

although it is for elevators I think some would apply to this .

no it was 5 pds . Seems reasonable after I looked all over on line and really could not save much and since I do not have to wait on it or hope no one steals it before I get home if shipped then I guess that is not bad .

I just bought the supplies for my next batch, from my LHBS. 12 lbs of grain, 3 oz. of hops and a yeast smack pack. The total was $28.
