Default Show us your grain storage system

Not real fancy but rolls out so I can access the base and specialty grains I need.

Cool thread. I've been thinking about how I want to store grain when I get my mill. ( my brew store is working on it)
I'm about two hours from the brew store so I need to be able to store full bags of base malts and smaller amounts of specialty grains.
Rcole's setup looks a lot like my brew store's setup.
I like the buckets that Barrooze uses for specialty grains. Sealed and free from light.

I'm digging the printed labels! I only store one type of grain, but this is a great idea.

Ive got mine in the clear food grade buckets from home depot with gamma lids. Questions though. I currently have my grains in the gaage but we're reaching freezi temperatures, should i be bringing them in the house and keeping them in a closet?

The graphic labels on my bins are cut out from catalogs and laminated.
