Brake fluid question

So I've been doing a lot of side work lately to find my project. Naturally that includes brake jobs. I'm thinking about building an auto bleeder out of one of those weed sprayer things. I'm curious, if I leave clean brake fluid will it be ok to store that way, or would I need to purge the container with some inert gas prior to storage to prevent it from collecting moisture? Thanks in advance for your help.

Storage in a sealed container is not a problem, long term storage with contact with the atmosphere will allow the fluid to absorb water.

Napa stores are a good source for brake fittings.

I just redid my brake lines, or at least 75% of them. O’reilly Auto is very close to me. They did not have a fitting so I went down the road to NAPA. I was amazed at how much better the quality was for brake line fittings.
