The Vittles Vault line of containers are very popular for bulk grain storage.  They have a large opening for easy access and have an airtight design.

How much grain can this hold? The 35 lb size is listed as having an 8.5 gallon capacity.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, this would hold about 42.5 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate.  Actual storage capacity will vary.

I use a wallpaper tray to clean and sanitize longer items like racking canes, auto-siphons, spoons, tubing and beverage out dip tubes.  It works great.  These also work well for storing longer items.  If you’re going to store things in these, I would recommend stacking a couple together to give them some extra strength.

The Vittles Vault line of containers are very popular for bulk grain storage.  They have a large opening for easy access and have an airtight design.

How much grain can this hold? The 35 lb size is listed as having an 8.5 gallon capacity.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, this would hold about 42.5 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate.  Actual storage capacity will vary.

Putting Together a “Brew Day Box” – 13 Things to Make Brew Day Easier!

brew day box

Part of Our Homebrew Tips and Tricks Series.  Check out the complete list – Homebrewing Tips, Tricks & Shortcuts! This is a Top Post! See: All Top Posts


Why a Brew Day Box?

Over the years I’ve homebrewed, I’ve utilized a number of storage and organization strategies.  Some could be defined less as strategies and more as “piles”.  These strategies have ranged from, cardboard boxes, to big totes that I threw everything under the sun into to using smaller shoe box size containers and breaking everything out into categories.  The shoe box size organization method has worked well and other than a few large totes for bigger items, it’s what I’ve settled on.  At some point after going to that, I realized that when brew day rolled around, I had to collect items from a number of these containers.  I usually forgot something and had to look around, multiple times per brew day trying to find whatever I needed.  That evolved into putting together a container just for brew days.  I cleverly 🙂 call that my “Brew Day Box”.  This container houses nearly all the small odds and ends that I use when brewing.  I’ve also tried to make sure those things don’t really need removed at other times.  For example I use a refractometer regularly, not just on brew day, so… I bought another refractometer.  Everything that’s in my Brew Day Box generally… stay in my Brew Day Box.  This keeps everything in one place and I’m not wasting time trying to find stuff when I should be brewing.
