There are reports of 6-9 months with no problems.
I completely believe that you can with no problems provided you sanitize the container and pour the wort in while still at or near boiling temps. I just don't know what advantage long term storage provides.

Maybe a guy doesnt want to brew outdoors in the winter when temps are in the 20's. SO, he creates his wort in November, 15 gallons maybe. Then as the winter progresses, pitches to ferment them and have fresh beer.

FYI, I bought a 5 gal Culligan cube from Walmart yesterday full of water for about $10. It actually holds about 5 3/4 gallons.

Are you fermenting in the cube? If so how big is your batch?
