    Ok...new to this pellet thing. If I buy pellets, 2 or 3 ton in the spring, will they still burn good the following winter? They will be stored in the basement (walkout) on wood pallets. I'm in Wyoming and the humidity is about 30% currently in the house running my stove and is about the same year round. Thanks

    Yes. As long as they are kept dry they will last indefinately.

    Personally, I would feel fine about storing for a year or more......or even up to two in some areas. Eventually, mold or other problems could occur - obviously depending on where you live and whether a dehumidifier is in the basement, etc.

    I live in MI and because of certain circumstances waited 2 years to burn a backlog of about 15 bags and they were fine. Michigan is much more humid than Wyoming too.
