Rival Vacuum Sealer + Bag Starter Kit… $27.99 + Recent Hop Finds

This highly rated Rival Vacuum Sealer has recently sold for as much as $73.95.  It’s down to $27.99.  That’s the lowest price we’ve seen and just $1.03 off the record low.  The combo includes a starter selection of vacuum bags.  It ships free with Prime or with a qualifying $35 order.

If you don’t have a vacuum sealer, now is a great time to get one.  Closeout 2013 crop hop deals are on the horizon.  As new 2014 crop comes in stock, retailers are going to discount 2013 stock.

Back in Stock – Grain Storage: Gamma Seal Lid + 6 Gallon Bucket – $13.95

These have been out of stock for a while.  I just noticed… they’re back.  Consider shipping, I think this is a great deal.  I’ve purchased several sets of these myself.  Check out my Hands on Review.


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 size gallon buckets have an approximate capacity of 60 lbs. 


This 6 gallon bucket and Gamma Seal Lid combo from Emergency Essentials sells for $13.95.  The best part of it is the $6 to $12 shipping charge.  You’ll pay no more than $12 shipping.  The $6 shipping fee tops out at 4 bucket/Gamma Lid combos.  $9 ships up to 8 sets.  $12 ships 9 sets all the way up to 30 sets.  Typically buckets are very expensive to ship because of their size.

Thanks to HBF Reader Josh for this tip!

Yesterday I posted about a new record low price on Vittles Vaults’ 60 lb Airtight and Stackable Container of $32.43.  That is far and away a new record low direct from Amazon price.

Josh emailed me to point out a lower price under “More Buying Choices”…

Shipping is a flat $5.99 no matter how many you buy.  Although, when I tried 10, shipping dropped to $3.99.  At $23.89… this is an amazing deal for a great grain container.
