Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop

Three piece combo set – 25 lb airtight container (with casters), 10 lb Airtight Container and a scoop.  BPA Free/FDA Compliant Material.  Use for grain storage.

As to capacity…. This combo has appeared on HBF in the past. Here is some feedback we’ve received..

Anonymous Commment: “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.

68+ lb Capacity Airtight Grain Storage

Iris Airtight Storage Container
 

67 Quart Airtight Storage Container from IRIS.  Wide opening for easy access.  Clear sides to see contents.  4 Casters for easily moving this around.

67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  10 Gallons holds about 50 lbs of grain so 67 quarts should hold about 82.75 lbs of grain.

The product description does say this holds up to 55 lbs of pet food.  My rule of thumb on pet food to grain conversion is based on the Vittles Vault II containers.  Those hold 40 lbs of pet food, but generally hold 50 lbs of grain.  That’s 1.25 lbs of grain per lb of pet food.  Using that conversion this should hold around 68.75 lbs of grain.

So… this either stores 82.75 lbs of grain or 68.75 lbs of grain.

Airtight lid, wide opening for easy access and on casters for easy transport.

Twitter Friend – connect with HBF on Twitter – Frank has one and says… “Perfect for grain storage. Great seal, sturdy.”

Grain Storage: Gamma Seal Lids

Gamma Seal Lid Grain Storage

Gamma Seal Lids are a great option for grain storage.  They fit on top of a standard 5 – 7  gallon buckets and provide an airtight seal.  An outer ring snaps on the bucket.  The inner portion of the lid screws on and off for easy access to grain.  So, you get an airtight seal without having to pry off the lid.  The general rule of thumb is… a 50 lb sack of grain will fit in two 5 gallon buckets.

These are also available at Home Depot for $7.25.  Order online and pickup in store…

Vittles Vault, Airtight Grain Storage ~31 lb Grain Capacity

Gamma2 Vittles Vault Plus Storage

Gamma2 Vittles Vault Plus.  Airtight, FDA Approved and BPA free, Easy Spin On/Off Lid (looks like an integrated Gamma Seal Lid), lock down double gaskets, molded handles for easy grip.

This is rated for 25 lbs, but… The 25 lb rating is for pet food.  According to the manufacturer’s website, this is 6.6 gallons.  That figures to right around 25 liters.  My rule of thumb is 1.25 lbs of grain per liter.  So… this should hold right around 31.25 lbs of grain according to my estimate.

These are airtight and FDA approved for food grade storage.
