As to capacity…. This combo has appeared on HBF in the past. Here is some feedback we’ve received.. “Mine arrived yesterday and I managed to fit a 50lb sack of 2 row in them.”

from HBF Reader Adam: I was able to successfully fit a 50lb Briess bag of Rye into one set of these. I was not able to fit a 55lb bag of 2-row into a set. I may take a few more minutes to shake it to settle the grain and try again, but it is going to be very close. One additional note on these, when you pick these containers up to move around, the lock doubles as a handle, as such, it is very easy to unlock it and potentially spill the grain.

Why would you want a Vacuum Sealer for homebrewing?
Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops. You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys. Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

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.
