Bulk grain storage, 10lbs. or more

Recommended Posts

What do you keep your base grains in so they stay fresh, and keep critters out? I thought of something like this, http://www.amazon.com/IRIS-Airtight-Container-10-Pound-Clear/dp/B007RBB662/ref=sr_1_19?ie=UTF8&qid=1375180120&sr=8-19&keywords=airtight+storage+containers , think it would be OK?? Hard to find a container at Walmart larger than 1 gallon.

I have 2 different size Vittles Vaults. You can get them at Petco but they are cheaper online. They lock out air and keep things uber fresh for a very long time. But they aren't cheap.
I also have extra large zip lock backs that I put my 50 lbs bags of 2 row in (it takes 2 of these bags to fit all 50 lbs). This way, it a bag rips or spills, the grains don't get mixed. Works for me and the containers will last a lifetime.

I use lowes food grade buckets and lids with gaskets on them. Each one will hold 25 lbs.
