I’m fond of Brother labeling machines that have the ability to use their TZe style labeling tape.  That line of tapes has an extra strength adhesive version.  The extra strength adhesive versions are designed to work in harsh environments, both indoors and outdoors.  I’ve found them to work well even in slightly moist places like my kegerator.  I use TZe style labels for labeling storage bins, my co2 manifold, keg lines, kegs and more.  Search: tze extra strength on Amazon

Lots of TZe Tape colors and styles are available.  I generally use the 1/2″ Black Print on White Tape – Standard | Extra Strength.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage] – $7.57 + free add on ship

gamma seal lids

Gamma Seal Lid by Gamma2


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

  • Keeps food fresh
  • Airtight seal protects the contents
  • Easy spin on/off lid

“Transform your bucket into an easy opening, airtight, pest-proof storage container with the universal Gamma Seal Lid. When attached to virtually any 12″ diameter bucket (3.5- to 7.0 gallon), the Gamma Seal Lid provides airtight protection for the contents—excellent for literally thousands of storage applications. The resilient elastomeric gaskets keep air and contaminants out, while protecting the contents. Stackability is also a handy feature! The Gamma Seal Lid is available in a variety of food-grade colors for safe storage.”


Gamma Seal Lids [Hands on Review] are a great upgrade to standard buckets.  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 off.  These are also airtight.  I use buckets with Gamma Seal Lids as my primary storage for bulk grain and recipe kits.

How much grain can you store in a 5 gallon bucket?  My rule of thumb for grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimate a  50 lb sack of grain fits in (2) 5 gallon buckets.  That’s an estimate and will vary.

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.
