Default Storing Grain

I ordered enough grain for my next 4 beers and it mistakenly showed up already cracked.

What's the best way to store it for a long period of time?
Can I freeze it?

Liquid form. In carboys, kegs, or bottles.

I've stored crushed grain up to 6 weeks double bagged in giant ziploc bags. Its probably not the most ideal situation but I didn't have any negative side affects.

If you have a food saver vacuum thing it will last you quite a while.. though I would just brew all 4 one weekend if SWMBO would let me

Double bag and freeze it if you can't vacuum pack it.

But brew it sooner rather than later.

My first AG which was Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale, the crushed grains sat in the fridge sealed in a bag for a month, then sat in a SS pot unsealed with the lid on for well over another month before I got to brew it. Best beer I ever brewed.

What does a "long period of time" mean to you?

Put it in the freezer, preferably in a vacuum-sealed bag. I don't know how long it'll keep that way, but it's your best shot, short of brewing it all up over the next couple of weeks.
