IRIS Airtight Storage Container, 69 Quarts w/casters [~80 lbs+ Grain Storage] – $25.18… only 19 cents more than 47 quart size

IRIS Airtight Food Storage Container

IRIS Airtight Storage Container.  Translucent body means you can see what’s inside.  BPA free material.  Lid features airtight seals.  Casters so you can move as needed.

More Info

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

  • Translucent bodies – easy to check food levels
  • Airtight seals and snap-tight latches
  • BPA-free material
  • Made in the USA
  • Dimensions: 17.9 x 15.0 x 22.2 Inches

 

According to specs on the manufacture’s website model #301087 has a stated capacity of 69 quarts.  69 quarts = 17.25 gallons.  My rule of thumb for grain storage for unmiled malt is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate this would hold about 86.25 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate, actual storage capacity will vary.

Gamma Seal Lids – Spin Off, Airtight Bucket Lids [Grain Storage] – $9.99 + Free Prime Ship – Multiple Colors to Choose From

gamma seal lids

Gamma Seal Lid by Gamma


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

  • Airtight seal protects the contents
  • Easy spin on/off lid/bucket not included
  • Keeps food fresh

The White Gamma Seal Lid converts plastic 3.5 to 7 gallon buckets into airtight storage containers. This works well for storing everything from food such as rice and flour, pet food to paint and shop needs. Anything you want to keep fresh and airtight will be well stored in a bucket with a Gamma seal lid. The patented Gamma2 Seal Lid uses two gaskets to assure an airtight and leak-proof seal. The Gamma seal lid is proudly made in the USA from BPA free, FDA approved food grade plastic.


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.
