Grainwise, I have about 400 pounds in the brew room, the oldest of which is about 18 months and its still fine, and at room temp. I did find some grain that was over two years old got noticably stale.
How do you store your grain? In their original bags, rubbermaid tubs, etc.
I've thought about buying grain in bulk now that I have started AG. As for hops, The pouches I buy in the store are kept frozen in my freezer. I've thought about buying hops in bulk and using my Food Saver to vaccum seal them in smaller packages.
