Two Airtight Storage Containers & Scoop – $11.51, Best Price

Two airtight containers (33 quart and 12 quart) along with a 2 cup scoop.

My rule of thumb for grain store is about 5 lbs per gallon.  At that estimate, You could get about 41.25 lbs of grain in the 33 quart (8.25 gallons) container and about 15 lbs of grain in the 12 quart (3 gallon) container.  These are estimates.

4/27/17 4:30 PM Central: This highly rated combo has dropped to just $11.51 (in pink only).  That’s the best historical direct from Amazon price I found.

Great Deals on Food Safe Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Emergency Essentials Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Nutshell:  Emergency Essentials has great prices and reasonable shipping on on Food Safe Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids.

Food Grade 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets are available with either Standard Lids or with airtight Gamma Seal Lids.  I own and use 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.  They are airtight and no more prying lids.

About the 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets: “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.”

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).

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.

Full Storage Lineup – Buckets, Gamma Seal Lids, Lid Openers, Oxygen Absorbers & More

Shipping to most US addresses is based on an economical tiered model that maxes out at 12 no matter how much you order.
