Rubbermaid Commercial Bus Tubs [Brew Day and Beyond] – $9

Rubbermaid Commercial Products FG334900WHT 4 5/8-Gallon White Bus/Utility Box

Rubbermaid Commercial Products White Bus/Utility Box 4 5/8 Gallon.  Built to last.  BPA free commercial grade plastic with reinforced handles, bottoms and ribs for durable strength.  Rounded corners for easy cleaning.  Commercial dishwasher safe.  Made in the USA.

I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a bit larger at 7 1/8 Gallons] on brew Bus Tubs Homebrewday 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.

8/24/16 8 PM Central: These highly rated tubs are selling for $9.  Shipping is also free with Prime Membership or a qualifying order. Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.  See Recent Amazon Finds and our Amazon Fillers Resource Page to help you put together an order that qualifies for free shipping.

(8) 6 Gallon Food Safe Buckets + Lids – $64 Shipped

Emergency Essentials Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Emergency Essentials has great prices on 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids on Sale.  5 and 6 Gallon Buckets are available with either Standard Lids or with airtight Gamma Seal Lids.

For a limited time, Emergency Essentials is offering free shipping on any order of $50 or more.  Use code SHIP50 (all caps) in your shopping cart (not on the check out page).

That means you can get 8 food safe 6 gallon buckets and lids for just $64 including shipping.

I own and use the 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.  No more prying lids.  These are also 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).

From the description: “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.”

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.
