What's in the Lowe's buckets? What kind of tops do you have on them?

My local brew club recently purchased bulk grain from our lhbs, I have 2 row, pale ale and pilsner. The lids are called gamma lids, they have an air and water tight seal and just screw on. I bought mine off ebay

My beer cellar just flooded this past weekend. My sewer pipe backed up due to tree roots in my pipes. One of the worst days ever. ALL my beer equipment is kept down there and I also ferment down there. Everything was covered in you know what.

Anyways if anyone is up for a nut brown ale or fecal matter IPA...let me know.

I actually had a flood alarm down there till last summer. I was remodeling an upstairs bathroom so I had it up there and just never put it back. Lesson learned as they say.

I've cleaned everything up but not sure I want to use any of the equipment again. There's a gross factor there for me I guess.

The good news is my swmbo said I could upgrade to all grain equipment

Nothing fancy but i can stack a lot of beer in those milk crates. 1st pic is a "warm" room in the basement i use for conditioning and fermenting, 2nd pic is a cold part of my basement, small space behind dryer but i can stack up 30 or so milk crates in there. I also have a fridge in the garage

Fantastic idea. I am going to use this way to store my grains as well. Thanks. Great beer cellar.
