From what I’ve gathered this has a 4.5 gallon capacity.  My estimation for unmilled grain storage capacity is 5 lbs/gallon.  At that rate, a 4.5 gallon container could hold about 22.5 lbs of malt.  That’s a rough estimate.  Actual capacity will vary.

Hands on Review: Vittles Vault Stackable Storage Bins for Homebrew Grain Storage!

This review is by Homebrew Finds Contributor Brad Probert.  Brad is an engineer, expert homebrewer and experienced reviewer.  Grab a link to Brad’s website at the end of this review.

Vittles Vault Storage Bins

Gamma2 as a company is 100% dedicated to their mission of designing and providing pet food containers to animal owners (technically they also care about your dog getting out of the pool, as they make a doggy pool exit ramp). But, that doesn’t mean these “pet food containers” can’t be co-opted for homebrewing. The same characteristics that make them ideal for pet food, also make them ideal for malt storage.

Vittles Vault 60-lb Container

I’ll go through a few storage basics for malt. First, you want to store it uncrushed, so that the husk helps keep the good stuff inside protected from the environment. Cracked grain kernels are more enticing to critters, and opens up the endosperm to fast staling. Beyond that, grain wants to be kept at cooler room temperatures (40 – 60F), dry, away from light, and in an airtight environment. Maltsters range in the max recommended storage time, with most in the 12-18 months range, and some up to 24 months. When you buy grains by the 55-lb sack, most will put a “best by” date on the label, since you don’t know how old it is before you get it. Although you can save money by buying grains in bulk, you need to make sure you have the right throughput to use it up before it stales.

Lid o-ring Out of Groove on Right Side

Gamma2 has a number of different types and sizes of storage containers. All are designed to be airtight, so they keep air from getting in and staling your grains when you’re not scooping it. (Which of course, the same thing can’t be said for that 55-lb sack of grain you’ve got in the corner, with a stretch of duct tape over the hole you cut into it…) The lid design is how they achieve this air-tightness. There’s a compliant o-ring that’s held in a groove on the lid which gets compressed down onto a chamfered face on the body of the container to make the seal. As the threaded lid gets screwed down, the o-ring will get squished to block off the air-leak path past the lid.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage]

Gamma2 Gamma Seal Lid - Pet Food Storage Container Lids - Fits 3.5, 5, 6, & 7 Gallon Buckets

Gamma Seal Lids by Gamma2

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • Great for storing pet food, livestock feed, charcoal, smoke chips and more. Fits 3.5 – 7 gallon buckets.
  • Made with heavy duty BPA free HDPE Plastic. Safe to store pet and human food as well as other household items.
  • Simply snap on the universal adapter ring then spin the Lid for an airtight seal. Easy open, easy close.

 

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 unmilled 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.
