As of this posting, this is showing a stated capacity of 33 quarts.  33 quarts = 8.25 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage for unmiled malt is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 41.25 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate, actual storage capacity will vary.

The 25 lb size is said to be 6.5 gallons.  My estimate for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate an 6.5 gallon container would hold about 32.5 lbs of grain that’s a rough estimate, actual storage capacity will vary.

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.
