I’ve seen the capacity of this container described a couple different ways.  67 quarts and 55 lbs.  As of this posting, Iris via their website says that sku 300686 has a 67 quart capacity.

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon that’s… 83.75 lbs of grain storage.  This is an estimate.  It should easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag of grain with room to spare.  These are estimates.

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.
