Storing crushed grains

If you buy specialty grains to add to an extract recipe and have some left over, what’s the best method to store it? I brew about every two months.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

In a vacuum bag in a cool dark cabinet.
Or get them whole and crush only what you need for each batch. You don’t need a grain mill for small amounts.

I agree with this, especially the part about buying whole grains. You could buy a cheap coffee grinder and dedicate it to milling your steeping grains.
