Storage Options! – Base Grain, Specialty Grain and DME

Homebrew Grain and DME Storage Options

When it comes to storing grain and DME, we’re concerned about keeping ingredients fresh minimizing oxygen and moisture exposure.  We’re also interest in keeping Grain and DME away from possible pests.  Beyond that convenient access and efficient use of space are issues to consider.  This post also includes some tips and general sizing guidelines.

Buckets for Grain Storage – Pros, Cons and Capacity Estimates

Buckets are one of the most basic and popular options out there and for good reason.  They are generally easy to source, well made and cheap.  Food safe options are also easy to find.

Gamma Seal Lids [Great for Grain Storage] – $7.99 at Emergency Essentials

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage

I store most of my grain in 5 or 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seal Lids.  For recipe kits, I’ll store the whole kit (minus yeast and hops) in it’s own bucket.  Gamma Lids come with two parts.  An outer ring that installs semi-permanently on the bucket and an inner portion that spins off for quick and easy access.  That means no prying off hard to remove lids.  The whole thing is airtight.

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).

As of this posting, Emergency Essentials has Gamma Seal Lids marked down to just $7.99.  Shipping to most US addresses is based on an economical tiered model that maxes out at $12 no matter how much you order.  Check Emergency Essentials for current pricing and availability.
