Can you store a 33 pound can of Liquid Malt Extract for months?

Yes, I do it all the time. How do I do it?
  1. measure out what I need
  2. use a sanitized spatula to scrape the malt off the mouth of the can/jug
  3. store it in the fridge
  4. repeat

Over the years I've purchased four or five of these thirty three pound jugs and never had a problem. Thats way over twenty batches of beer.

See, if I had a 33 lb can of LME in my fridge, the question that would likely arise instead would be: Can you cram 33 lbs of LME into a single 5-gallon batch of homebrew?

Now that would be some high gravity yeast!
