My father in law is a farmer/rancher in Kansas. They store corn,wheat, milo,soybeans in grainj bins outside with i don't think any ill effect on most of it. I would think storing your gains inside your house would be like storing it in the
Taj Ma Hal? Whats the big deal? Most grains we use on the planet and used in all manner of ways are just stored in big piles on the ground outside, or inside a grain car. i have driven past grain elevators or farm steads where the grains are just in huge piles outside, I'm sure there is some "loss' but geez arn't we splitting some hairs here with the gain storage thing? Why isn't 5 gallon pails with lids good enough? Inside no less??? I am just asking?

Gregg,

If you aren't lucky enough to get it, watch eBay. I got a brand new one for under $20.

Keep in mind, Barley is a living seed and can remain viable in dormancy for quite a long time. Malt has been partially germinated and then heat treated. These are two completely different things with completely different storage characteristics. Also, these are crushed grains which makes a big difference as more of the surface area is exposed.

You could always unplug one of the freezers and put some closet dehumidifiers in there. Cool, dry grain storage bin. Saves energy too.
