Default I fail at search

This is what I am looking for. Pics of grain/hops storage. I am thinking of buying in bulk so I don't have to wait on boxes to show up. I have no idea what is required to store them for a month or two at a time.

I think you could just freeze them. If you've got a vacuum sealer, that's even better.

I don't have a picture, but I have storage bins. They are usually Rubbermaid, but I've bought the "generic" types too. I have big ones for base grain, and smaller ones for specialty grains. They go on sale all the time at places like Wal-mart and I have quite a few. Buckets from Home Depot, with lids, work well too if you have shelves they can fit on. You can write on the buckets, or use tape and a marker, to mark what's in each one.

I'll take a picture of my hops storage, though, in a minute!

I was told by Nothern Brewer it was bad to keep grains in the freezer, better to keep them in a sealed rubbermaid bin in a dark cool place.

I tend to have trouble finding things with the search function on this site, and find that if you just google, and put homebrew in the search, this site will always be at the top with multiple threads directly related with what you're searching for. The search on this site seems to pull much more broad results.

Anyhow, here are a few good threads I found, and I'm kind of glad you asked, because this is something I've been needing to look into as well:

Each of these holds 25 pounds of grain. And the gasket on the lid makes it nice and tight.



Some folks use the vittles vault food containers.

I would say you fail at thread titles too! lol........

But, in light of all the good responses here, I retract that.

I use large tupperware in my basement.

My money would be on a bucket that could double as a fermenter in a pinch if I was to go shopping now.
