Not sure if they are on sale at your HD, but mine has 36 gallon rubbermaid storage bins with lids for $5.....only a couple of ugly colors but they are great for grain storage.

I saw that as they had a puke green color last week. I went with the smaller brute for 30 bucks including tax. Fits 100 pounds of 2-row easy. You all are from Durango, you ought to call Jason up from Colorado Malting in Alamosa and have him bring you a sack or two next time he rolls through. Good stuff and he's great to deal with. Amazingly fresh malt...

DHBM and I just finshed up a group buy from CMC. We bought nearly 2000lbs on the last one. I'm still working through my 200lbs.

i use them already...lids are thin and after a while of outside use they will warp a bit. Just be ready. You get what you pay for. Indoor use im sure you would be fine

I hear these are good for storing grain, but never heard if you store it loose in the bin or inside the bag it comes in? I doubt it makes a difference, just thought I'd ask.

36 gallons?


You can fit 25lbs of grain in a 5g bucket.

That's why I use homer buckets, and they are HDPE rated to boot.
