  • Pet Food goes stale; Gamma2 keeps your food fresh
  • Airtight seal protects the contents
  • Easy spin on/off lid/bucket not included
  • Keeps food fresh
  • 12 pack, package contains 12 lids

Gamma Seal Lids [Hands on Review] are a great upgrade to standard buckets.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids off.  These are also airtight.  I use buckets with Gamma Seal Lids as my primary storage for bulk grain and recipe kits.

How much grain can you store in a 5 gallon bucket?  My rule of thumb for grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate a  50 lb sack of grain fits in (2) 5 gallon buckets.  That’s an estimate and will vary.

10/21/18 6 PM Central: These are selling for $89.99.  That figures to just $7.50 each.  Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.

Notes from HBF:  6″ x 3.3″ x 11.5″ = 227.7 cubic inches or about .98 gallons.  My rule of thumb on grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate .98 can hold about 5 lbs of grain.  This is an estimate.  With an integrated spout and including measuring cup, I think this is a good candidate for storing specialty grains and other dry ingredients.
