Reader Tip: Airtight Grain Storage Bins and Scoops on Woot

Thanks to HBF Reader Ryan and Matt for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Iris Airtight Storage

Sellout.woot has a selection of IRIS Containers and scoops.  These combos are available in multiple colors and get you a 10 lb container, a 25 lb container and a scoop.  All are versions are selling for $18.99.

My rule of thumb on grain storage is 1.25 lbs per quart.  That’s based on a 5 gallon bucket holding about 25 lbs of grain.  The 25 lb IRIS is 33 Quarts.  I estimate that it will hold about 41 lbs of grain.  The 10 lb is 12 quarts.  I estimate that will hold about 15 lbs of grain.

Airtight, made of FDA compliant material, casters (on the larger container) allow you to easily move it around.  Clear sides so you know what’s in it.  Large easy access top.
