12 1/2 Gallon, Airtight Food Safe Container [Grain Storage] ~62 lb Capacity – $23.86

12 1/2 Gallon Container.  Airtight.  Made of FDA approved Food Safe and BPA free materials.  Clear sides to easily see contents and large opening for easy access.  Wheels for tilt and roll maneuverability.

My estimation for grain per gallon is 5 lbs of grain per gallon.  At that rate, I estimate this should 62.5 lbs or so.  That’s easily enough capacity for a 50-55 lb bag of grain.  This is an estimate.

5/23/17 2 PM Central: This highly rated container has dropped to $23.86. That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found.

Food Grade 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets are available with either Standard Lids or with airtight Gamma Seal Lids.  I own and use 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seals for my primary grain and kit storage.  See my Hands on Review

Gamma Seal Lids are a great upgrade.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  They are airtight and no more prying lids.

About the 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets: “These buckets are different from what you will find at a hardware store. These are high quality, thick (90 mil) food grade plastic bucket, so there aren’t harmful chemicals that may affect your stored goods.”

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimation two 5 gallon buckets would hold a full 50 lb bag and two 6 gallon buckets would hold a full 55 lb bag (plus a bit more).

These buckets are food grade so they could also be used as fermenters.  Just pick up an airlock grommet to add an airlock.  If you do that, I would go with the standard lid option, not the gamma seal option.
