12 Ball Pint Mason Jars [Hop and Ingredient Storage]

91Rg61bzJnL._SL1500_

12 Regular Mouth Pint Jars by Ball Jar.  Includes lids and bands.  You can use these for hop and ingredient storage.

A quart jar holds about 1 lb of pellet hops [See: FoodSaver V2244 Review].  Pint jars hold about 1/2 lb of pellet hops.  Also: Ball Regular Mouth Storage Caps | FoodSaver Regular Mouth Jar Sealer

You can use canning jars to store hops, smaller amounts of grain, and other brewing ingredients and can starter wort.  I seal these with my FoodSaver V2244 [Review] Jar Sealing Attachment (Wide MouthRegular Mouth) when storing ingredients.  You can also use Mason jars to make starters and to can starter wort and sterile water (using a pressure cooker).  Storage Lids (Wide MouthRegular Mouth) are also available.

68+ lb Capacity Airtight Storage Container [Grain Storage]

61-M0JsggzL._SL1500_

67 Quart Airtight Storage Container from IRIS.  Airtight lid.  Wide opening for easy access.  Clear sides to see contents.  4 Casters for easily moving this around.

The product description says this holds up to 55 lbs of pet food.  My rule of thumb on pet food to grain conversion is based on the Vittles Vault II containers.  Those hold 40 lbs of pet food, but generally hold 50 lbs of grain.  That’s 1.25 lbs of grain per lb of pet food.  Using that conversion this should hold around 68.75 lbs of grain.

My volume rule of them is about 5 lbs per gallon.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  10 Gallons holds about 50 lbs of grain so 67 quarts should hold about 82.75 lbs of grain.

So… I estimate this holes between 68.75 and 82.75 lbs of grain.  Either way… it should easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag.
