Storing Opened Can HME

Recommended Posts

Wanting to use.a Large Coopers can of HME and use a third at a time, so I can go through my process three times to refine it and gain experience, as well as make modifications. I seem to recall a couple of comments in various threads about storing opened cans of HME - something about pouring a layer of vodka over it... I’ve tried searching to no avail.  Do you then refrigerate it? Can you freeze it? Can I save it for the six weeks required?

I do that to my jars of LME. Use what I need, pour a little vodka to cover the top layer, put the top back on, and back into the fridge.

For your HME, I'd use a clean/sanitized resealable jar and do the same. Should be good to go and easily last your time frame.

Thanks. So you’d maybe transfer it into a mason jar or Tupperware?

Ever tried freezing it?

Sanitized Mason jar would be my choice over Tupperware.
