Any thoughts on how we execute all the splits on shipment day? Incorporate the cost of some large bags to divy up all the splits. I'm in six splits alone.

I was planning on using some cheap plastic trash bags (doubled up). All of the splits will take a crew of 5-6 guys a whole Saturday to do I think. Pick ups will not begin until the splits are done which effectively means on Sunday onward. We want to make sure that splits are done accurately so we can't have any distractions of people picking up while doing the splits. I hope everyone understands.

Makes good sense, the last hop split went pretty darn smooth..assuming the pick-ups went as easily.

I'm in on a bunch of 10 to 13.75 lb grain splits.
Anyone have any idea what size of container will hold that amount of grain?

Home Depot buckets are your friend.

I just picked up a bunch of buckets at Home Depot the other day. I got the kind that are semi-transparent with volume graduations on the side to help keep an eye on the amount of grain in the bucket. Also, get the Gamma lids. They are gasketed, and screw on air-tight. Each bucket/lid combo cost me about $12.

On the shelf right above the buckets at the HD on Oakton.
