    Spent grain containers

    Right now we are using 4 large pickle jar style drums for grain. As production will be ramping up soon and our farmer can always be on call we need more bins. We don’t have a forklift or pallet jack, just a box dolly, and the bin needs to be able to fit through the average size door way. Any suggestions?

    you might want to look into some heavy duty trash cans with wheels like the one they use for home trash pick up.

    I found that Rubbermaid heavy duty trash cans are the best. Most of the other trash cans on the market do not last very long.

    I'll second this. The Rubbermaid "Brute" cans are what we use.

    I use several heavy-grade plastic drums (about 50 gal cap) I scavenged from our local car wash. They were used to transport car wash soap. I just cut off the tops with a Sawz-All and load them onto a pallet moved with my pallet jack. Can also be moved individually with a hand truck. Easy-peasy Sorachi Ace squeezie!

    Prost!
