Keep the pectic enzyme in the fridge It needs it. The other stuff, especially the powders should be kept out of the fridge. Every time you take it out, open it, take a scoop, put the lid back on, and back into the fridge it will gain a little condensation. That moisture will destroy those ingredients in no time.

A cellar or cool basement closet is the best for the stuff, but just not the fridge.
