Crushed Grain
« on: August 22, 2011, 10:25:31 am »
I am looking to save a bit of time for my next weekends brew question is "how long will crushed grain still be useable". It will be covered in an airtight container.  It will only be a week before I use it, but have never crushed grain and not used it right away?
Thank's in advance for any input.

You should be fine for a couple of weeks if it is properly stored in an air-tight container. I would not go beyond that though as the staling effects(oxidation) may become more evident. I wouldn't store crushed grain for more than a  couple of months even if stored in an air-tight container as it will start to lose it's freshness.

Agreed, you'll be fine for a couple of weeks, no problem.
