What to do with a half open packet of grain

5 posts in this topic

I just brewed the Santa Rita Pale on Sunday, the kreusen is beautiful! The recipe called for 2 oz. of Crystal 15, so I have 2 ounces left in a zip lock bag. My upcoming brew, in about 2 weeks, is a Thunder Bay IPA, which I don't want to alter. After that it's a Shillelagh Stout and also a Baltic Porter. 

 

I guess I'm asking, how long would you keep a previously opened bag of crushed grains? It's in a zip lock bag in a closet.

I seal them with scotch tape and keep them in a plastic container in a drawer in a cool room in my basement. I have not noticed any problems. although I have not compared old hops with new directly.

After my first batch of lock Stock and Barrel Stout I had several 1/2 packets of ingredients. I kept them in ziplock bags in the fridge for a couple months and just started another batch.

 

I'll let you know if that was the wrong thing to in about a year.

a brown paper bag with crushed grains in a ziplock bag sat on my table for a month... and was just fine when i finally got to it.
