I've got a 75L rubbermaid garbage can I use when I buy 25KG sacks. There's quite a bit of room left in them. That's 20G and 55lbs I believe. So for 20lbs I don't think you'd need all that much space.

Let's see, I just filled a 6.5g ale pail for a batch with 19 lbs and it was filled right to the top. I'd say get yourself about an 8 gallon rubbermaid/sterilite bin.
