More Info

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

  • Bag-In features allows dispensing of seed or food from the original bag while maintaining nutritional information
  • BPA Free, FDA-approved food contact safe resin.
  • No bugs! No spills! No mess!

Heavy-duty unit for the bigger bags. 8-gallon storage dispenser works with up to 22 lb. bags of dog food, 25 lbs. of cat food or 32 lb. bird seed bags. Convenient handle makes pouring easy from any size bag. Patented “Bag-Gripper Lid” seals contents inside the original bag – yet allows for easy pouring. Dual-Pour Flip Top provides two ways to pour.


 

My rule of thumb for estimating grain storage capacities is about 5 lbs per gallon.  That means an 8 gallon container would hold around 40 lbs of grain.  That’s only an estimate.  Actual capacity will vary.

Note from HBF: Possible homebrew applications… Use as a fermenter or bottling bucket or use for grain storage.  If you’re looking to convert to a fermenter, search Amazon for food grade airlock grommets.  If you’re wanting to use these for grain storage, my estimate is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, a 5 gallon bucket holds about 25 lbs of grain.  Grab two if you’re looking for enough room to store a full 50 lb sack.  This is an estimate.

I don’t see where this includes a lid.
