From what I’ve gathered this has a 4.5 gallon capacity.  Not 100% sure if that’s right, but my estimation for unmilled grain storage capacity is 5 lbs/gallon.  At that rate, a 4.5 gallon container could hold about 22.5 lbs of malt.  That’s a rough estimate.  Actual capacity will vary.

Tip: Get Food Grade Buckets for Cheap – or free

Satin Ice Rolled Fondant Icing White 20 PoundsPictured: Satin Ice Rolled Fondant Icing White 20 Pounds via eBay – For illustrative purposes, I’m not suggesting that you buy this.  Read the tip below.

For years, I have suggested to homebrewers that bottle – make friends with your local craft beer bartenders.  Especially beer spots that carry heavy glass, refillable German and Belgian types of bottles.  These bottles are beautiful and well made and the labels generally come off very easily.  If you make friends with your local purveyor of quality craft beers you can usually grab these bottles for free or for the cost of bottle deposit.  You’ve saved some beautiful bottles for re-use, helped your homebrew standout by using awesome bottles and saved some money.

How about making friends with your local baker or donut shop?  The reason you may want to do that is, first you could eat a donut and those are pretty tasty.  Second, bakeries and donut shops sometimes purchase icing in 5 or 6 gallon buckets.  Those buckets should be food safe, since they… already have food in them.  The trash to treasure principal applies here.  Bakeries that use these have an abundance of them with no great place to send them other than the trash or possibly recycling.  Make friends with your local baker and you may just score some free or near free food safe buckets for fermenting, grain storage and general around the brewery use.
