Gamma Seal Lids – $7.50

Gamma Seal Lids for Grain Storage

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.

Emergency Essentials – beprepared.com – has Gamma Seals marked down from $10 to $7.50.  Gamma Seals + 6 Gallon Buckets are also on sale.

Emergency Essentials has tiered flat rate shipping – up to $60 ships for $60, $60.01 to $120 ships for $9 and $120 + ships for $12.

Two Airtight Grain Storage Containers & Scoop

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.
