Default Bulk Grain storage

Vittles Vault II 40lb- Holds up to 60 pounds of seed. Dimensions are 14"x14"x24" and it has a double gasket seal. One at each lid.

I just bought 5 of these at USPlastics. Base price was ~$22 but, if you order 4 or more you get a 10% discount. Discounts get deeper the more you order at one time. My order came to ~$19 each with ~$22 shipping.

Prost!

I have a bunch of those, also bought from USplastic. I love them. I have several sizes. they also sell them at petsmart. not sure of the price but you'd save on the shipping.

I bought all of mine from Amazon.com. Shipping was free since my order was over $25

Nice catch. I called USP and they tell me that the price change has been reflected on my order. With the discount, I am paying $16.10 each.

I saw them, but opted for something that was more stackable and seemed to be a little more rugged. But I'm sure both work fine... though I love mine

This is what I use - I love it since it wheels around my brew area. I bought mine at Walmart for $20.

I use the same bins as brrman but picked them up at Tractor Supply for $15 a pop. Almost a whole 55# sack of basemalt. Wheat Malt and Rice Hulls get stored in Homer Buckets until I find something better.

I use the following with a screw top lid for specialty grains and they hold about 5# per container.
