    what about leaving the grains at room temp? I've always been told that they will stay fresh for a year uncrushed. I wonder how much it would extend the life to be vacuumed sealed

    I just got a vacuum sealer for free from a friend - are there any down sides to using it on hops and possibly to extend the life of uncrushed specialty grains?

    Reason for steeping grains?

    Steeping grains add a huge amount of flavor - Your right that crystal malt doesn't add much fermentables but it add color, mouth feel and flavor And no - you shouldn't substitute twice as much crystal malt for a malt that has half the lovibond - each crystal malt has its own flavor
