I’m almost through your book “How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It” for the second time and was wondering if you could recommend some 5-6 gallon stainless steel food storage containers for long term storage? I like the idea of food safe, oxygen-impermeable, and vermin-proof containers. Looking around on the web I found a pharmaceutical supply firm that sells nice ones for well above $1000 each. Also a few wine barrel vendors that were out of my price range.
Thanks, – Curtis
JWR Replies: One of my consulting clients in a locale where they have “rats the size of cats”, had problems with his HDPE plastic buckets of rice and wheat getting chewed through. His solution: He bought used stainless steel beer kegs–the type with one large bung hole (I presume for the “tap”.) Shop around!
