I haven't had the time to brew for the last 6 months or so and I have some grain stored my fermentation fridge at about 68 degree. Would the grain still be good for brewing? They have been stored in closed plastic bags.
This is not a real clear answer about freezers. The freezer section of my basement refrigerator has nothing but hops and grains, and the refrigerator is full of beer, so I'm not sure if food smell would be a problem. Anyone have experience or opinion on freezing grain?From bensyverson's BYO link:
I would not recommend storing malt in the freezer, mainly because it is not necessary. The other problem with freezers is their amazing ability to make things taste like they were stored in a freezer!
