found food grade buckets
« on: December 21, 2014, 12:24:17 PM »
searched local Craigslist for food grade.
 Found a place that is selling them used for $2 a piece with lids and it's only 1/4 mile from where i work. 8)
“There is no such thing as pure good or pure evil, least of all in people. In the best of us there are thoughts or deeds that are wicked, and in the worst of us, at least some virtue. An adversary is not one who does loathsome acts for their own sake. He always has a reason that to him is justification. My cat eats mice. Does that make him bad? I don't think so, and the cat doesn't think so, but I would bet the mice have a different opinion.”

Cool.    Good find.

Most of the decent (ie: no pickle smell) local sources here have dried up, so I've been buying them new at Lowes for $3.58 plus $1.15 for the food grade lid.

I've been pretty fortunate in my area too, finding quality food grade buckets.   Actually, this is a good reminder to go buy more. :)

i found that winco sells them along with the gamma seal lid. both 5 gallon and 2 (or is that 1) gallon sizes.


From a friend: Benjamin Franklin once said that beer is proof that God loves us.
I'm of the opinion that Redheads are proof that, contrary to popular belief, Satan also loves us.

Walmart and Menards are selling food grade buckets and lids.
I'd like to have some gamma lids, but wut wut, they are pricey

Gamma seals are great for the places you realy need them, buckets you open multiple times a day. They are ant and moisture resistant and easy to open. So, I have them for buckets I use constantly, and for Long term storage, use the regular lids

I'm thinking I may get about 3 of them then. For buckets that we will use in the house often.
Corn, wheat, and rolled oats. Maybe 1 for coffee beans also.

Thanks

That's what I do--the sugar, rice, flour & wheat berries For the kitchen have gamma seal.  The long term stuff sealed in Mylar just has the regular lid.
