I use two similar bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model from a different manufacturer and different specs] 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.  See: Bus Tubs for Brew Day & Beyond – Save Time and Effort When You Homebrew

2.5L Airght Container w/Spout & Graduated Cup [Grain and DME Storage] – $9.97 + free prime ship, close to Prime Day 2019 price

23 cups is about 5.44 liters.  My rule of thumb on smaller containers is 1.25 lbs of grain per liter.  That means this should hold about 6.8 lbs of base or specialty grain.  It would also hold a good amount of DME.


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

  • Pet food dispenser with airtight seals and seal buckles keep out moisture, humidit, keep the food dry and fresh.
  • Recyclable safe plastic materials, safe to storage food for people and pets! This PISSION Pet Food Storage Container is ideal for any pet food, litter, seed or bedding material.
  • Translucent design allows for easy monitoring of food levels and the measuring cup with a scale, can easily to control of your dog’s appetite.

This has a stated capacity of 2.5 liters.  My rule of thumb on smaller containers is 1.25 lbs of grain per liter.  At that rate this would hold about 3.125 lbs.  That’s an estimate.

This features airtight seals, has a spout and an integrated graduated measuring cup

7/21/19 3 PM Central: This has dropped to just $9.97.  That’s just 38 cents shy of the price we saw for Prime Day 2019.

According to the manufacturer model 300646 has a 28 quart capacity.  My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  28 quarts is 7 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon a 7 gallon container would hold about 35 lbs of grain.  That’s only an estimate based on an assumed capacity, which may not be right.

5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

Note from HBF: Possible homebrew applications… Use as a fermenter or bottling bucket or use for grain storage.  If you’re looking to convert to a fermenter, search Amazon for food grade airlock grommets.  If you’re wanting to use these for grain storage, my estimate is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, a 5 gallon bucket holds about 25 lbs of grain.  Grab two if you’re looking for enough room to store a full 50 lb sack.  This is an estimate.
