Van Ness 5 Pound Food Container

Van Ness 5 Pound Food Container


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

  • Ideal for owners of small dog’s and cat’s who want to store 5-pounds of pet food
  • Fresh-tite seal ensures your pet’s food will stay fresh longer reducing spoilage due to pests and moisture
  • Made from united states food and drug administration approved plastic for food contact

The 5 lb rating on this is for pet food.  If I had to guess, I would guess that you could hold more than 5 lbs of malt in this container.  Generally speaking, malt capacity is higher compared with pet food rated capacities.  That’s only a guess.

IRIS airtight storage container.  Airtight seal.  Made of FDA compliant, BPA free material.  Translucent sides so you can see contents.


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

  • Premium airtight plastic food container features an airtight seal and snap lock latch to keep moisture, humidity and pests out.

According to specs on the manufacturer’s website model #NMP-S has a capacity of 15 quarts.  15 quarts = 3.75 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 18.75 lbs of grain.  That’s only an estimate.

The 50 lb size is listed as model number 300591 on the product page.  According to the manufacturer that model has a 65 quart capacity.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  65 quarts is 16.25 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon a 16.25 gallon container would hold about 81.25 lbs of grain.  That’s only an estimate based on an assumed capacity, which may not be right.

That’s only an estimate.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage]

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.
