I use icing buckets, easy to stack, air tight, and food safe. 2 will hold an entire sack as long as you brew a batch right off the bat

My question is how does everyone here keep their bulk grains? I have seen that some keep them in buckets, but that's going to be a heck of a lot of buckets.

I was thinking of getting some of those larger plastic storage bins with the locking lids, and adding a strip of weather strip to the top of the container to help create a tighter seal, and then just keeping the bags in them.

Does anyone have any better solution, or other ideas?

Thanks all!
Try searching on line for 55 gal plastic drums that are food grade. I use two to store my grain and the lids have a rubber seal in them that keeps everything air tight. I have grain in them from last April's bulk grain buy and the grain smells fresh and wonderful everytime you open the lid. Mine came from a applesauce factory in Adams county Pa, close to Gettysburg. Do an on line search and see what you can find.

I apologize for dragging up a dead thread but I got three of these shipped to my house for $68 + change. They look to be ideal for the purpose.

Did they arrive intact? They look like the handles could be ripped off pretty easily. Does the seal look good? Sold out right now, of course.
