I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer, they’re also a bit smaller compared to the tubs featured in this post at 7 1/8 Gallons vs 9 gallons] on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.

IRIS Airtight Storage Container with Casters [~80 lb Grain Storage Capacity] – $23.99 + free prime ship

IRIS Premium Airtight Pet Food Storage Containers

Airtight Storage Container by IRIS

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Premium airtight plastic food container features an airtight seal and snap lock latch to keep moisture, humidity and pests out.
  • Airtight storage bins are tapered so they’re easy to clean and scoop food from.
  • Airtight containers for food hold up to 55 pounds of dry dog food and 50 pounds of dry cat food.
  • BPA free rolling dry food storage bin includes casters for easy mobility.
  • Dimensions: 19.3″L x 14.8″W x 23.7″H

 

I’ve seen the capacity of this container described a couple different ways.  67 quarts and 55 lbs.  As of this posting, Iris via their website says that sku 300686 has a 67 quart capacity.

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon that’s… 83.75 lbs of grain storage.  This is an estimate.  It should easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag of grain with room to spare.  These are estimates.
