MacCourt Utility Tub, All Purpose, Series: AT2606, 9 gal Capacity, 26 in Length, 20 in Width, 6 in Height, Polyethylene, Black, For Mixing Mortar and Cement


I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer, they’re also a bit smaller compared to the tubs featured in this post at 7 1/8 Gallons vs 9 gallons] on brew day 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.

  • [SUPPORT DRY & WET FOOD] With latest updated function for moist food, this food sealer is ideal for sealing all types of meat, seafood, fruits, marinated food and vegetables to achieve air tight seal without failure.
  • [AUTOMATIC OPERATION] Simple one-touch vacuum-to-seal operation helps to finish the job in seconds! CANCEL button is designed for crispy or soft food, to stop the appliance and to avoid food crushing due to over-compression.

Why would you want a Vacuum Sealer for homebrewing?  Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops.  You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys.  Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  You can also store specialty grains in vacuum bags.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

I use a wallpaper tray to clean and sanitize longer items like racking canes, auto-siphons, spoons, tubing and beverage out dip tubes.  It works great.  These also work well for storing longer items.  If you’re going to store things in these, I would recommend stacking a couple together to give them some extra strength.

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.
