Mother ****in mice in my mother ****in grain!!!

True. I tossed it all today. Bags torn, and full of mice turds.

Any suggestion for storing? Thinking coolers or those large plastic Tupperware type containers with tight fitting lids.

Gamma Vaults. Keeps your grain fresh and keeps the critters out.

Home depot orange buckets. Each bucket is $3.50 with the lid, holds EXACTLY half a sack of grain, stack well for storage, and are easy to move around

gamma vaults work well and when you scale up to 55gal plastic drums they make handy emergency fermenting jugs

Home depot buckets have worked well for me. The gamma vaults look a lot better, but it wasn't worth the cost for me.

I bought a rubbermaid type container at the dollar store. It has handles and snaps shut. I have a 55lb sack and about 12lbs of specialty malt with room to spare.

Used food grade buckets + gamma seal bucket lids, a lot of delis and bakeries will give you the buckets for free and the lids are very cheap.
