I am interested in buying grain in bulk and obviously want to store it properly. I have read about bucket storage systems, Mylar bags, and oxygen extractors.
Other than keeping grain dry and away from insects and pests, how much do I need to worry about Mylar bags and oxygen extractors? They seem like overkill unless I plan to store for years.
I have heard than grain found in 2500 year old Egyptian tombs was ground into usable flour.
