Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop

IRIS USA, Inc. Airtight Pet Food Container Combo Kit

This combo package gets you two airtight containers (one 25 lb container and one 10 lb container).  You also get a scoop that could act nicely as a grain scoop.  The 25 lb container has casters for easily moving it around.  Both containers are airtight, BPA Free and made from FDA compliant material.

As to capacity…. This combo has appeared on HBF in the past. Here is some feedback we’ve received..

from HBF Reader Adam: I was able to successfully fit a 50lb Briess bag of Rye into one set of these. I was not able to fit a 55lb bag of 2-row into a set. I may take a few more minutes to shake it to settle the grain and try again, but it is going to be very close. One additional note on these, when you pick these containers up to move around, the lock doubles as a handle, as such, it is very easy to unlock it and potentially spill the grain.

Anonymous: “Mine arrived yesterday and I managed to fit a 50lb sack of 2 row in them.”

Grain Storage: Gamma Seal Lids

Gamma Seal Lid Grain Storage

Gamma Seal Lids are a great option for grain storage.  They fit on top of a standard 5 – 7  gallon buckets and provide an airtight seal.  An outer ring snaps on the bucket.  The inner portion of the lid screws on and off for easy access to grain.  So, you get an airtight seal without having to pry off the lid.  The general rule of thumb is… a 50 lb sack of grain will fit in two 5 gallon buckets.
