Yup, this. GOTTA get the Gamma lids otherwise the pry-off lids will make you NUTS.

I then put small amounts in canning jars in the kitchen.

Just a note: unless you go through stuff quickly, it is good to store grains/ beans/ herbs/ etc. somewhere dark (cabinet, pantry) because light does break down the nutrients over time. (I.e. in a clear jar out on the counter.)

Re: How do you store bulk grains?

A few years ago I asked at the bakery in sams what they did with the buckets and lids that frosting came in. They gave me a number of them and they were wonderful for storage. I would imagine any large bakery gets them. Sams usually throws them out. Be advised they are not nice to clean up as they will have blobs of dried frosting. But they were free!
