nope, it might actually help keep it "fresh" or longer, whey is supposed to be kept in a cool dry place anyways

normally it says keep in a cool "dry" place... refrigerators usually build up some condensation... I personally wouldn't do it but, I have no proof otherwise.

I always refrigerate mine in the morning for about 15 minutes before drinking. It tastes better to me....Never had any problems. I like it cold.

I think they're referring to the container itself... though i'm not positive. I do the same thing when its already mixed in water.

Yeah I wouldn't refridgerate the container it would definitely build up some moisture which will ruin it.

Cool dry place doesn't necesarily mean COOL, it generally means room temp/out of direct sunlight or off the floor heater. lol.

The container? Or individual shakes? I dont refrigerate my container, but i always keep the shaker with milk/water in the fridge before mixing in the powder, cold milkshakes then :D

Keeping the container is a cool dark place will keep it fresh, i once left a container of cyclone on my window sill and it turned green...can only imagine it was from the heat of the sun! But i see no reason to keep it in the fridge  ;D
When i think i can't do it, i put on some bangin tunes and push out the last few reps!!
