Sealing Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers in 5gal buckets for long term food storage

The enemy of your food storage is time, heat, light, moisture, oxygen, and pests.  Storing grains in a sealed Mylar bag void of oxygen, in a food grade bucket, in a cool place is one of the best and cost effective ways to quickly and inexpensively build your food storage.

This is the best way I have used to store grains long term. I use 2 500cc oxygen absorbers instead of hand warmers (but hand warmers will work).

(addendum – I would not recomend hand warmers because they lack food grade packaging)

If you do not used a vacuum of some sort to pull out the excess air, then get out as much as you can by hand and use 3 500cc oxygen absorbers.
