Leftover grain

The place to discuss ingredients, whether about their properties, growing or creating your own.

Hi guys
I hope someone might be able to help me out with this. I am picking up some ingredients tomorrow with a view brewing the bank holiday weekend.

The problem I see is the excess of specialty grain. I know it is only €1.52 a kilo but how long and what is the best way to store them. I am sure that has been covered already but I am thinking can I steep the left over grain then freeze the wort it creates? Has this been tried or is there any draw backs?

Maybe best to just leave crushed grain in the fridge and brew again in a few weeks when my bottles are building up again

Thanks for the help
Rob

Crushed grain are supposed to be good for up tp a year if stored properly.
Store it in a cool dry place :lol:

A slightly underfed cat does the same thing in a very efficient manner. :shock:
