Default Need container to store 50 lbs of flour

Just figured I would ask here for suggestions on a cheap decent way to store this monster bag of dough maker. From what I read I think 40 quarts will hold the fifty lbs of flour.
Anything Wallyworld would have I can use?

55 quart coolers work well. Bugs and mice being the biggest problems.

Does it need to be one container? Two 5 gallon buckets would be 10 gallons or 40 quarts and you can buy Gamma Seal Lids for them that screw on and have a gasket that seals them air tight.

See the Gamma Seal Lids here:

Pandi - we bought a set at Sams a few months back. The biggest one will hold almost 50# = 19" long, 10" wide, 20" tall. Has a great lid. We just buy the 25#'ers at Sams. I don't know if it would hold two.. but it would be close.

Here's the kicker... Sam's isn't carrying them anymore, but went to Petsmart a few weeks ago and seen the EXACT same container for dog food... not yank'en yer chain, brother.

Here ya go

Buy a 15 gallon rubbermaid garbage can with a lid, and line it with a similar sized food grade bag.

Why not buy a bunch of gallon size zip loc bags? I can't see it taking more than a box of bags. Then you could put them in the buckets and only have to open one bag at a time.

I dunno.. Why have a big container to hold 50lbs. of flour when you can make (5) 10lb. vacuum seal bags?? Then that would not take up as much space.. Plus it will keep fresh, not pick up any odors or flavors.. Just thinking out loud..

you can also just wrap the original bag in a food grade bag & itkeep in the chest freezer if you have room.

Don't know what your goal is here. If it's long term storage, milled flour has a very limited shelf life. If you want long term storage look at whole wheat berries and buy yourself a grain mill. Whole berries can last for many years. Flour can't. You'll want to use it within the year. Also Whole wheat flour is shorter than white AP because the germ oils can get rancid on you. I think it's like 8 months for whole wheat flour.

It says its good for a year with proper storage so thats what im shooting for. Its way more than I will use in a year im betting so I want it to last longer if possible. Some places say two years if stored right.
I could only find high gluten in 50lb bags so was stuck having to go this route.

Frak Ken, ya beat me to the suggestion.

One thing I might add. If you decide to just dump it in a bucket or another type of container, rather than using a food grade liner, there is something better that long term food so-called "experts" suggest -- a mylar type liner. Most long term and survival food storage systems for grains and nuts use mylar inside the containers to shield the food from both light and other crap from causing mold build up. They also use oxygen scrubber packs. The O2 packs are sort of like those little bags that soak up moisture. But in this case they pull in oxygen and release nitrogen. They are slick, if you put grains and nuts in a canning jar, toss one of these in and then put the canning gasket and lid on, you can sit there and watch it suck all the air out of the jar and hear the lid snap creating an air tight vacuum seal. FEMA uses mylar and oxygen scrubber packs in all their food storage systems. USDA uses it also. Thats how they store the stuff for 25+ years.
