storing pre-made 5-1-1
Now that I've found a source of pine fines, and made a couple batches of 5-1-1 (the second is much better than the first), I have some questions:
Since it appears that finding pine fines during certain times of year will be difficult, if I make more than I need, how long will it last?
Would storing it "dry" (let it dry out and not remoisten) make it "keep" longer? And - would it be near impossible to remoisten it?
Am I best off to leave the CRF and Lime out of the mix if I don't expect to use it for 6 months or more?
Or should I just store the fines in the unopened bags until I need to mix it?
