Some say 2 weeks, others have used crushed grain months old and said the beer came out just fine. Obviously the fresher the better, and it's best to crush shortly before you brew. Just keep it cool and dry.

And taste it. Learn what it tastes like when it is fresh and you will now what it tastes like cold.

Is storing crushed grains in the fridge a good idea to help them keep longer?

By taste it, I mean put it in your mouth and taste it. Fresh and old. Your tounge will learn.

I once stored crushed grain in a sealed bucket for 3 weeks and the beer came out great.
