Body: 5 gallon round buckets are best because they are durable and when they are stacked close together they will have air circulation around the buckets. Grain can give off some heat so circulation around the containers is important to allow that heat to escape. I love 5 gallon buckets because they are easy to stack and move.Sealed metal cans are just as good. In my opinion, 10 cans are just inconvenient for bulk storage of grains. Buckets and cans keep vermin from chewing into your food storage, unlike double bagged grain. The most important thing about your grain container is that it keeps the oxygen and light out.I always buy my grain commercially packaged so I can't screw it up. Commercially packaged grains don't cost much more and really simplifies things.Where to Put Your Grain ContainersA dark, colder room is best. It is ideal to have the room 30 to 70 degrees but not necessary. Warmer rooms will work fine as long as it is sealed well. Make sure containers are slightly spaced to allow some air circulation. If using metal cans, place them on boards instead of the cement floor so the cans don't rust. The most important thing in storing grain is to keep oxygen out, protect it from high temperatures and light, and away from moisture.You Need a Grain MillYou can use your grain without grinding it but that highly restricts the best ways of preparing grain goods, like anything that uses flour. I guess you could get two flat rocks and rub the wheat between them, just don't share any of it with me. If you plan on making baked goods you will need a way to make your wheat into flour. Many people get all the grain they will need in their food storage but forget getting a way to grind it into flour.A good grain mill should be part of every food storage check list. A cheap hand mill is what a lot of people get but if they had to use that grain mill for very long they may be quite disappointed with it. I suggest that you get a good quality hand mill for you food storage. Electric grain mills are nice but, if things got bad, electricity might not be an option. I use a WonderMill Grain Mill.Keeping it FreshAs far as I know, commercially sealed buckets or cans of grain should last 30+ years if not indefinitely. Having said this, I still think it is a good idea to rotate your grain to keep it as fresh as possible.I always label my buckets with a date and use the oldest one first, this is a common practice and I'm sure most of you do it. If you are worried your wheat has gone bad you can test it. Try sprouting it, if it sprouts within a week then it is still good. For more on Grain Mill uses check http://theWonderMill.com
