13 Gallon Food Safe Drums for Fermenters and Grain Storage

13 Gallon HDPE Food Safe Fermenter Grain Storage

13 gallon food safe containers via eBay. Drill a 1/2″ hole in the lid and add an airlock grommet [Search: Airlock Grommet] and you’re up and going with a 13 gallon fermenter. You could also use this as a food safe 13 gallon grain storage container. At an estimated 5 lbs per gallon, these would hold approximately 65 lbs of grain. These are pre-used barrels. They were used to hold pharmaceuticals.

from HBF Reader Aaron: “I own one of these, they do have an o-ring and work great for storing grain or fermenting in.”

These are selling for $20 + $23 Shipping.  The seller will combine shipping for multiple items (contact the seller for actual USPS charges).  Or… if you live in or around Rancho Cucamonga, California you can arrange for local pickup.

Reader Tip: $6.97 Gamma Seal Lids at Menards

Thanks to HBF Reader Kent for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage
Pictured: Gamma Seal Lids from Emergency Essentials

I store most of my grain in 5 or 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seal Lids.  For recipe kits, I’ll store the whole kit (minus yeast and hops) in it’s own bucket.  Gamma Lids come with two parts.  An outer ring that installs semi-permanently on the bucket and an inner portion that spins off for quick and easy access.  That also means no prying off hard to remove lids.  The whole thing is airtight.

A 5 gallon bucket can hold about 25 lbs.  So two 5 gallon buckets equals about a bag of grain.  Two six gallon buckets have an approximate capacity of 60 lbs.

2 Gallon Polypropylene Lab Jar

71EYeJGecoL._SL1500_

2 gallon Scienceware Wide Mouth Mason Jar by Bel-Art.  Extra large, Heavy duty and leak proof design.  Highly shock resistant polypropylene.  Can withstand high temps – autoclavable up to 121 deg C (250 deg F).

At 2 gallons you could use these for a number of homebrewing related tasks.  Maybe even a small batch fermenter.

I have several Bel-Art products I use for homebrewing, including these 500 mL Autoclavable jars.  I use those primary for yeast rehydration.  See: Tip 1 on our Tips Page.  You could also use those for making sanitized (or sterile with the use of a pressure cooker) water for washing yeast and for storing yeast slurry.  I also use these to take pH and refractometer samples on brew day.
