Why would you want a Vacuum Sealer for homebrewing?  Vacuum sealers are indispensable for storing hops.  You can save money by getting in on bulk hop buys [See: Recent Hop Finds]. Use your vacuum sealer to break these up and to preserve freshness.  You can also store specialty grains in vacuum bags.  Other uses include: storing base grains, partial dry yeast packs and storing and preserving other beer ingredients.

This is a chamber vacuum sealing machine.  This is a different technology than most home caliber machines use. This technology is superior and allows you to seal using both standard channel style bags and compatible mylar bags.

IRIS Airtight Pet Food Container

IRIS Airtight Container

More Info

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

  • Plastic airtight pet food container is the ideal solution for storing dog or cat food, other pet food, and more
  • Pet food bins have airtight seals and snap lock latches to keep out moisture and pests for secure dry food storage

  • BPA free rolling storage bins come with casters for easy mobility
  • Dimensions: 14. 57″L x 13. 77″W x 15. 31″H

 

This has a stated 32.5 quart capacity.  My rule of thumb for unmilled grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  32.5 quarts is 8.125 gallons.  At 5 lbs per gallon an 8.125 gallon container would hold about 40.625 lbs of grain.  That’s a rough estimate based on an assumed capacity.  Actual storage capacity will vary.
