13 Gallon Food Safe Drums for Fermenters and Grain Storage

13 Gallon HDPE Food Safe Fermenter Grain Storage

13 gallon food safe containers via eBay. Drill a 1/2″ hole in the lid and add an airlock grommet [Search: Airlock Grommet] and you’re up and going with a 13 gallon fermenter. You could also use this as a food safe 13 gallon grain storage container. At an estimated 5 lbs per gallon, these would hold approximately 65 lbs of grain. These are pre-used barrels. They were used to hold pharmaceuticals.

from HBF Reader Aaron: “I own one of these, they do have an o-ring and work great for storing grain or fermenting in.”

These are selling for $20 + $23 Shipping.  The seller will combine shipping for multiple items (contact the seller for actual USPS charges).  Or… if you live in or around Rancho Cucamonga, California you can arrange for local pickup.

Reader Tip: $6.97 Gamma Seal Lids at Menards

Thanks to HBF Reader Kent for this tip!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage
Pictured: Gamma Seal Lids from Emergency Essentials

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 also means no prying off hard to remove lids.  The whole thing is airtight.

A 5 gallon bucket can hold about 25 lbs.  So two 5 gallon buckets equals about a bag of grain.  Two six gallon buckets have an approximate capacity of 60 lbs.

Gamma Seal Lids at Menards.  Kent Says that Gamma Seal Lids are available at his local Menards (Madison, WI) for $6.97.  Check your local store for pricing and availability.

Gamma Seal Lids at Emergency Essentials Emergency Essentials – beprepared.com – has Gamma Seals marked down to $7.50 with reasonable tiered flat rate shipping.

Gamma Seal Lid – $7.50 – available in a variety of colors
