> 3) best ways to store grains and beans for prevention of insect damage
almosts 30 years ago I was part of a doomsday cult community - we
prepeared for the worst, moved to a lowly populated area, got into
permaculture (this was my introduction to it ;-)), and stored grains,
beans and nuts in bulk. the method we used was:
metal hobbocks with airtight lids (stack well when empty and when
de-oxygenizing with nitrogen in pressure gas bottles (have a hose on
the bottle, cover the opening of the bottle with a piece of flyscreen,
place in the container, fill with goods, place the lid on the
container so only a small crack for the hose is left open, open the
valve and put in as many liters as the container has (=ignore the
volume of the grains to make sure the nitrogen flows in all corners.
you need a throughflow meter for this so you know how much volume you
put in.), pull out the hose with gas still flowing. close lid airtight.
