I did some searching and didn't see this previously discussed in depth - but is there any harm in pre-mixing salts?

I currently keep them in separate jars and measure each on brew day - but in an attempt at improving the day's efficiency, I was thinking I could pre-measure for each profile/addition and already have them mixed and ready to be used in the mash/boil on brew day.

Would this cause interactions, reduce shelf life or effectiveness? What about diluting them in a couple ounces of water to have a concentrate on hand and ready?

painfully aware of his inexperience and the questions that come due to it...

Interesting question. I don't think there would be any interactions, but I'm not sure I'd mix them with water ahead of time as some do react with water.
