I need to know the best way to store bulk grains & how long I can safely use them before they are past their 'use by' date. I am from SE Queensland & it's bloody hot at the moment. Also any info on partial mashing techniques would be greatly appreciated. Also (again) I've had 50g of Goldings hop pellets in the freezer for 12 months now. Are they still worth using??

Pete, Can't help you out much with the storage of products however last weekend I did my first partial mash and took some photos with instructions. (Helped by Dave @ Goliath Brewing)

Storage of products, there was a good thread going a few weeks ago, do a search and you should find it.

BYO did have a good article, I think it was one of the articles that ended up on line, so have a search there.

If at all possible, dig a cellar, you are going to need one for the brewing. Dig a big cellar.

Have fun with the mini mashing. Next stop, your first all grain brew.

With the quoted mini-mash that I did it came out great (minus the dry ezyme) and the colour.

Does anyone know of a way I can reduce the darkness of the beer?

Maybe not boil the LME for the full hour?
