I've been using Cooper's LME's,since their cans have that white liner in them. No metallic taste from it. I got a midwest cascade pale ale kit (PM) with a small "milk" jug of plain gold LME with it. It's sealed up in the fridge for about a month now. One more week or so till my new stove burners come in. Then it's game on & I'll report back with results. Even the grains look to be keeping well in the fridge,sealed in there bag with a zip tie.

I checked with Northern Brewer - theirs comes in what looks like milk jugs. I was told they don't recommend putting it in the refregerator. Said it could even be detrimental because it can cause moisture pockets and mold. I haven't tested this, so I can't really offer an opinion.

I've always refridgerated mine,& as long as it's still sealed,it stays fresh & no problems. Mold needs air & warmth to propagate. As long as no air gets in the container & fridge is cold,I never saw it happen.

I wonder if the milk jug packaging Northern Brewer uses could make a difference - maybe some air space causing a problem. I don't have any here now, or I'd look and see.

The lil jug I got from midwest has no air space,so if yours dosen't,I wouldn't worry to much about it. Sealed in the fridge doesn't make for a good breeding ground for mold. Just things that are unsealed will molder eventually.
