Default is it okay to store nitro fuel in the fridge?

i ask b/c one of the two gallons that i have is caved in [not much left in it]and the other uncorked gallon has a bubble or bulge on the bottom. i don't run my AC in my flat all the time, so it can get "warm" [80-85 degrees fahrenheit] from time to time. anyone get around the cool dark dry rule by storing it in the fridge. i mean, i don't have a room or space that could double as a friggin' wine cellar for crying out loud. i googled it and came up short. let me know if you know. thanks mates.

A good idea to compress some of the air out of the jug before closing the lid, keeps the buldge problem at bay.

i was going to do that once but i was advised against it cos of condensation!

similar to when you take a glass or jar out of the fridge it condensates from the warmer air and you really don't want that moisture in your fuel!
