    Just store it some where dry and cool, I wouldn't store it in a fridge as it'll get damp.

      I have an old fridge that i put a 15 watt lite bulb in as a storage box, keeps the stuff around 60f, if the temp climbs to much just drill a heat escape hole in the top, candies,clears and chrome like colors wii be damaged at 75 f for even just a few hours...something to think about too when you order powder, try to order it early in the week,you dont want it sitting on some shipping dock all weekend.

          It seems putting powder in the refrig with it running is not a good idea because of moisture build up,but it would stay cool.Blademans sugestion about a refrig with a light sounded good but when temps reach 90 I don't think it would stay below 75.I don't live in Oregan.I liked the idea about shaking it every week so it doesn't get clumps.Lots of good sugestions.Thanks

            I would reccomend an air conditioned room with a de-humidifer, but only in the summer months.
