5 Gallon Heavy Duty, Food Grade Bucket AND Lid – $8.30 + free shipping

5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

Note from HBF: Possible homebrew applications… Use as a fermenter or bottling bucket or use for grain storage.  If you’re looking to convert to a fermenter, search Amazon for food grade airlock grommets.  If you’re wanting to use these for grain storage, my estimate is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, a 5 gallon bucket holds about 25 lbs of grain.  Grab two if you’re looking for enough room to store a full 50 lb sack.  This is an estimate.

IRIS Airtight Container [25 to 40 lb Capacity Grain Storage] – $14.96 + free prime ship

IRIS Airtight Container.  Rated for 25 lbs of pet food.  BPA free and with FDA compliant material.  Airtight.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Airtight seal and snap lock latch keep out moisture, humidity, and pests
  • Tapered container makes it easy to scoop out pet food
  • Holds up to 25-lbs dog food, 22-lbs cat food, 40-lbs of bird seed or 55-lbs cat litter

According to specs on the manufacturer’s website model #MP-350/SKU 300570 has a capacity of 32.5 quarts.  32.5 quarts = 8.125 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 40.6 lbs of grain.  That’s an estimate.

I use a wallpaper tray to clean and sanitize longer items like racking canes, auto-siphons, spoons, tubing and beverage out dip tubes.  It works great.  These also work well for storing longer items.  If you’re going to store things in these, I would recommend stacking a couple together to give them some extra strength.

9 Gallon Utility Tubs [Brew Day & Beyond]

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

MacCourt Utility Tub, All Purpose, Series: AT2606, 9 gal Capacity, 26 in Length, 20 in Width, 6 in Height, Polyethylene, Black, For Mixing Mortar and Cement


I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer, they’re also a bit smaller compared to the tubs featured in this post at 7 1/8 Gallons vs 9 gallons] on brew day 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.
