No.  Fertile ground for infection.

 

Here's what I do:

 

1) Sanitize pot and lid.

 

2) Fill bigger pot with 2" of ice cubes and a little water.

 

3) Boil a cup of water (I do it on the stove, some do it in a measuring cup in the microwave), and stir in the sugar while it's coming to a boil.  After boiling for a minute or so, I cover and put it in the bigger pot to cool.

 

4) Sanitize bottles.

 

4.5) Remove pot from cooling pot, WIPE off the water on the bottom/sides.

 

5) Add solution to slimline / 2nd LBK (it's plenty cool after you've sanitized 2 cases of bottles (if you only use the 1 liter bottles, then it may not be plenty cool).  I actually sanitize bottles for 5 gallons, and do two 2.5 gallon LBKs, so I make up two solutions, one goes in the cooling pot, the other cools by the time I am ready for it).

 

6) Fill with LBK's contents, gently stirring 1/2 way and when done.

 

7) Fill 8 bottles.  Gently stir.  Fill 8 bottles.  Repeat.

Not a dumb question.  It really depends on what you are storing it in and for how long and how clean you are with it. 

 

I have done my boil (10 minutes) and then poured it into a sanitized mason jar while it was still hot (above 170).  By doing this you are putting a sanitized solution into a sanitized vessel and then sealing it.  I have stored it for a day or two with no issues.
