I haven't tried it yet but have been wanting to. I think groats are buckwheat (i.e., the whole grain version instead of flour)?

I think they recommend in general to keep whole grains refrigerated as the oils can go rancid. I think probably if your kitchen is not too hot and you're not storing them a long time, it probably doesn't matter too much.

Like aradajnos said, it's not the same as wheat, even though wheat is in the name. I believe it's gluten-free, which means you couldn't simply substitute buckwheat flour for whole wheat flour and get the same results.
