Airtight Storage Container [~55-80 lb+ Grain Capacity]… $21.99 + free prime ship

IRIS Premium Airtight Pet Food Storage Containers

IRIS airtight storage container.  Airtight seal.  Made of FDA compliant, BPA free material.  Wide opening for easy access.  Includes wheels/casters.  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.
  • Airtight storage bins are tapered so they’re easy to clean and scoop food from.
  • Airtight containers for food hold up to 55 pounds of dry dog food and 50 pounds of dry cat food.
  • BPA free rolling dry food storage bin includes casters for easy mobility.
  • Dimensions: 19.3″L x 14.8″W x 23.7″H

According to specs on the manufacture’s website model #NMP-XL has a capacity of 67 quarts.  67 quarts = 16.75 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 83.75 lbs of grain.  67 quarts should be able to easily hold a full 50 to 55 lb bag of grain. That’s only an estimate.

I use two similar bus tubs [Different manufacturer, model and specs] on brew Bus Tubs Homebrewday and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.
