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.

This is rated for 25 lbs.  That, generally speaking, is for pet food.  Grain capacity estimate.. I believe this Iris’ 33 Quart size (model/SKU 301034). – specifications on Iris’ website.  33 Quarts = 8.25 gallons.  My estimation for unmilled grain storage capacity is 5 lbs per gallon.  At that rate, this would hold about 41.25 lbs of grain.  This is a rough estimation based on assumed capacity of 33 quarts.  Actual storage capacity will vary.

MACCOURT PRODUCTS TV245969 26x20x6 Plas Util Tub


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

  • Outside size: 18*13.3*4.8 inch
  • Made of commercial grad plastic
  • Capacity: 13 L
  • Easy to clean
  • Great multi-purpose item

I use two bus tubs [Note: Mine are a different model, manufacturer and specs] on brew day and I find them invaluable.  I keep one below my March Pump setup.  It catches drips and also offers a place to store wet items such as stirring spoons, mash paddles, my mash stirring whisk and my equally invaluable 1 gallon pitchers.  I reserve the other tub for clean and dry items.  Having two of these helps me keep dry/clean and wet/dirty items separate and means less lugging stuff around on brew day.  They’re also handy for catching drips from drying gear and general storage.
