A: Hello TGL: Your picture doesn't come through, but I think you are looking for a smaller bucket? We sell a 2-gallon & 3.5-gallon pail to Home Depot, but I don't think either would work for you. The 3.5 translucent gray pail is made from polypropylene and would not be strong enough. The 2-gallon is made from HDPE but, because of its size, would most likely not hold 60 lbs. Even though though it is large, a 5-gallon bucket may be best. You would not need the more expensive food-safe bucket for this purpose, the orange Homer buckets would do just as well at a lower cost.

A: Hello Priss, Dry wheat should be okay for a long period. Of course, it depends on how you define that. We don't test for longevity of materials, so I can't give you any data. You'll want to make sure it is kept in a cool place and you have a good cover to keep out as much moisture as you can The screw-top lid (homedepot.com# 303808738) is the only food-safe lid we supply to Home Depot. Make sure it is installed properly and it should provide a good seal.
A: Hi Kandy, Yes, as the name implies, this bucket is considered food-safe. This is the only food-safe bucket we sell through Home Depot. All of our food-safe buckets have a red, white, and black sticker with a spoon, knife, and fork indicating that it is made from food-safe resin. Most manufacturers will explicitly mark their food-safe buckets in a similar way. In addition, our buckets are BPA free.
A: Hello Anon, We don't do any testing or have any data ourselves. There are many factors that will affect your liquid including how tight the lid is and where it is stored. Are there other wine makers you know who have experience? Looking online, the advice is anywhere from 6-8 months to 5 years. Dry goods are better stored. I'm sorry I can't give you a more definitive answer. A restaurant supplier may be able to guide you. We are primarily a DIY manufacturer.
