This is rated for 25 lbs.  That, generally speaking, is for pet food.  Grain capacity estimate.. I believe this Iris’ 33 Quart size (model/SKU 301034). – specifications on Iris’ website.  33 Quarts = 8.25 gallons.  My estimation for unmilled grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, this would hold about 41.25 lbs of grain.  This is a rough estimation based on assumed capacity of 33 quarts.  Actual storage capacity will vary.
