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.

Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop

IRIS USA, Inc. Airtight Pet Food Container Combo Kit

This combo package gets you two airtight containers (one 25 lb container and one 10 lb container).  You also get a scoop that could act nicely as a grain scoop.  The 25 lb container has casters for easily moving it around.  Both containers are airtight, BPA Free and made from FDA compliant material.

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

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.

Anonymous: “Mine arrived yesterday and I managed to fit a 50lb sack of 2 row in them.”

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage

Thanks to HBF Reader Jason for this tip!

I use 5 and 6 gallon buckets along with Gamma Seal Lids for grain storage.  Two 5 gallon buckets will hold a 50 lb sack of grain.  I also store recipe kits in 5 gallon buckets with these lids.  Depending on the kit, I can store 1 to 2 in a bucket.  I use a write on/ wipe off pen to record the contents of each bucket.
