5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

5-GALLON WHITE ALL PURPOSE Durable Commercial Food Grade Bucket With LID

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.

7/17/19 2 AM Central: This combo is selling for just $8.34.  Shipping is also free to many US addresses. Prices, shipping and availability can change quickly.

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.

5 Gallon Neoprene Sleeve for 5 Gallon Buckets – serve on the go, convert a bucket to a cooler, insulate bucket based mash tuns

Bucket Cooler - 7mm Neoprene Sleeve for 5 Gallon Bucket

Bucket Cooler – 7mm Neoprene Sleeve for 5 Gallon Bucket

More Info

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

  • Durable 7-millimeter thick neoprene to best insulate and pad any 5-gallon bucket
  • Designed to keep your drinks, daily catch, and anything else the sportsman needs cold
  • Strong 8-stitch used on all seams and edge guard added along the entire top circumference for extended life
  • Dimensions: Height of 13 inches, Bottom Diameter is 10 inches, Top Diameter is 11.1 Inches
  • Multiple colors to suite your need

 

Note from HBF: In my opinion… a 5 gallon bucket with ice is a go-to for serving kegs on the go.  This slips over standard 5 gallon buckets to provide additional insulation.  Use for serving kegs  at get-togethers and such or for converting a 5 gallon bucket to a cooler for chilling cans and bottles and whatever else needs chilling.  Also: Portable Draft Serving Options.  It could also come in handy for fermentation buckets and for those who use 5 gallon buckets for mash tun and HLT.
