Storing Crushed Grains

(1/2) > >>

hillbillybrewer:
How long can you store crushed grains without ill effects?  I have 3# of specialty grains each in separate bags that are gonna have to hold off for at least a month.  I don't have a vacuum sealer.  Will they be OK?  TIA and Merry Christmas everyone!

A month is no big deal. If you can put them in a freezer that would be best.

Really?  Isn't there a concern for condensation when you take it out?

Hmm... maybe? My thinking on that has always been that anything I'm not using is only outside the freezer for a few minutes, and anything I'm going to brew with is going to get wet anyway. Subjectively, I've never seen ice crystals on my frozen grains or anything.

denny:
I've never tried freezing, so that's why I asked.  I just keep 'em in a tightly sealed paper bag inside a plastic bag in a cool room.
