    How long can I store enzymes

    Well this was always a concern of mine, until Epi-Dog and buying enzymes 50 kilos at a time. I kept 20 kilos out for Skari in 2011 and I am still using the same batch and they are fine just as good as the first day.

    However I can also say they were double bagged with Silica for dryness in the enzymes, and in each layer of plastic bags.

    Once double bagged I then vacuum sealed them again with Silica packs that turn "Red" if moisture is detected for a safety visual cue.

    I then placed them in a dark blue Tupperware tub and that is put in the coolest closet of the house.

    So proof in in the pudding, enzymes can be stored for 5 years easy... I am not sure if it matters that I use Pharmaceutical enzymes.

    Shrug, I was never that brave, though if they are vacuum sealed well there should be no problem. I would personally put them in a cardboard box to stop any possible freezer burn.

    I have so much bulk frozen meat for feeding RAW I would be afraid of dropping a bag of Elk and the sharpness of their bones when sawed are nasty often times puncturing the freezer bag.

    Now if you lived at a regular house
