Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop… $17.56 with Instant Coupon

IRIS Airtight Pet Food Container Combo Kit, Garnet Red/Gray

Airtight Containers and Scoop

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.”

6/26/15 8:25 AM Central: This combo is selling for $21.95.  An instant 20% off coupon is available.  That brings it down to… $17.56.  Make sure and click the “Clip Coupon & Save” button.  You should see the discount reflected at checkout.  Shipping is free with Prime or a qualifying $35 order.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

Reader Tip: 68+ lb Capacity Airtight Grain Storage + Reader Feedback

Thanks to HBF Reader Geoffrey for this tip!  There are 8 Ways to Connect with HBF

Iris Airtight Storage Container
 

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

67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  10 Gallons holds about 50 lbs of grain so 67 quarts should hold about 82.75 lbs of grain.

The product description does say 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.

So… this either stores 82.75 lbs of grain or 68.75 lbs of grain.

Airtight lid, wide opening for easy access and on casters for easy transport.

Twitter Friend – connect with HBF on Twitter – Frank has one and says… “Perfect for grain storage. Great seal, sturdy.”
