Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage] – $7.35, volatile pricing

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.

The Cereal Killer Grain Mill from Adventures in Homebrewing is a great mill!  Check out my Hands on Review.

The $99.99 is a common sale for the mill.  The 20% off all grain kits is also common.  However, picking up some all grain kits to use with your shiny new grain mill typically comes with a heavy toll… as it breaks free shipping.  The free shipping promo brings this all together.  The mill purchase takes you over the free ship order threshold and you can add on as many all grain kits as you’d like, save 20% and those and get free shipping on the whole order.

Brand New 2.5 Gallon Ball Lock Kegs – $79 + free shipping, beat EDLP + Hands on Review

AIH New Double Rubber Handle 2.5 Gal Keg

Brand New 2.5 Gallon Gallon Ball Lock Kegs via Austin Homebrew Supply.  ISO 9001 Certified, NSF Certified, Ball Lock 2.5 Gallon Capacity and have double rubber handles.  Typically double rubber handle kegs cost more compared to single strap handle kegs.

2.5 gallon kegs are great for small batch brewing, splitting batches and serving on the go.  Check out my Hands on Review of these great kegs.

As of this posting, Austin Homebrew Supply has this marked down to $79.  Lately these kegs been exempted from most sales.  Recently I’ve noticed they have also been marked EDLP – everyday low price.  I’m not saying they’ll never be discounted further, but recently the price has been more locked down.

Stacks With… Free Shipping!  In my opinion, this is a stellar deal as is.  It gets even sweeter today since this deal stacks with a free shipping promotion that Austin has going on today.  As of this posting, Austin Homebrew Supply is shipping most orders of $49 or more for free to the lower 48 US States.  Double dip on savings by picking up something that’s already on sale.  As of this posting, a whopping 78 items are on sale.  That can change at any time as items sell out or selection changes.  Many but not all of this items will work with this free shipping promo.  No coupon code is necessary. The free shipping promo DOES work with these kegs and amounts to a loophole that gets you a deal on these kegs.

These are made from Stainless Steel and are available in lots of configurations.  Those are classified by Type and Size.  Type may mean something in “commercial cam lock fitting circles”, but I was initially confused by this.  Types are akin to model numbers.  For example, Type A is Female NPT to Male Cam and Groove.
