Ought a recipe but can't brew for three weeks probably. What can I do with the grain to keep it at its freshest? Will freezing it work best?
I'm certainly no expert and fortunatley haven't had problems. check out post 5 in this thread. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/stupid-weevils-grain-beer-132413/What temp would u consider to warm? It's been sitting in my living room for a few weeks close to a month around 70
I don't believe the OP ever mentioned weevils, and I don't think it's a concern at all at this point.I'm certainly no expert and fortunatley haven't had problems. check out post 5 in this thread. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/stupid-weevils-grain-beer-132413/
Apparently freezing the grain for a few days or more will kill the weevil eggs.
I've frozen hundreds of pounds of grain, including base grains, without any problem.I've never read anything about the effects of freezing on the diastatic enzymes...my assumption is that all is well, however that is my only question with regard to freezing. Most plant seeds can survive winter temps so I would think barley could also.
