Wondering if you guys would store your crushed grain in the Refrigerator... assuming that you had the supplier crush your grains before shipping.
Thanks!

That's what I used to do. Seal it up in a zip-top bag, squeeze the air out and into the fridge!

You want to use them fairly quick though, crushed grains lose their freshness fast!

Eh, If i know im going to use them like the next day I usually just toss em in the fridge myself. I never bother with zippies if its in the near-future that they will be used. Either way, it'll do that trick.

I find a plastic garbage bag (kitchen size) works well...just tie up the top and stick it in the fridge.

I haven't ponied for a BC yet, so I buy my grains crushed. B3 does a pretty good job, but I still need my own. I just store mine in ziplocks with the air squeezed out and put them in the freezer. I figure the colder temp will give me a little longer longevity. Hopefully

Or freezer if you have the space. Just let them warm up before brewing or your mash-in temperature will be off.
