    Hello All: I opened some white rice and red pinto beans, which were stored 6 years ago. They were in sealed mylar bags inside of food grade 5 gallon buckets with sealed lids. I had also put oxygen absorbers in both bags. There were no bugs or contaminants in either bag. The rice looked...

    Apparently the consensus around here is that this situation is bad enough for using your preps, and I agree. I got a couple more rice since we all started focusing on the virus on the boards-- one 20 lb. during the panic shopping, and one a little before that. A few days ago, I decided to open...

    Ok guys and gals, let's talk about the serious of long term food storage with mylar bags. Why is it serious? Because storing food in mylar bags is something just about anyone can do. It allows families to stockpile dried food products in bulk. I like to use ziplock bags with a flat...

    Will beans that have been stored in mylar bags sprout? Since I am on a gardening seed sprouting kick, I decided to dig out some of my beans that are stored in mylar bags. These are store bought beans from the grocery store. I have: Pinto beans Navy beans The bags are dated March 2011...

    Hey guys... Well I ordered my first kit (50 1gal bags/50 - 300cc OAs) from discountmylarbags (best prices I found and even better when I used the site discount). Anyways... I'm picky about oatmeal... not sure why but I am. Found that I can get 10# boxes of quaker oatmeal from Jet.com for...

    A person can spend all day in the garage mylar-bagging flour and still not get it right. You start off with these nice stackable 25 lb sacks ($7.98 each)... 1. rip em open, try to dump them into the 6 gallon mylar, spill all over. 2.) try putting the mylar bags into 5 gallon buckets first...

  9. New Member Introduction
    Hi all, Thank you for having me on your site. I am honored to be sponsoring you. This website has a ton of useful information. I live in the rural mountains of California. I started storing food for my family about 15 years ago. I realized that if I was overpaying for all of my storage...
  10. Food and water
    There's something Ive always wondered that I'm hoping someone can answer. I've got plenty of food stored in mylar with oxygen absorbers. I don't use buckets. When sealing the food, sometimes the bags "suck up" completely as though I'd used a vacuum sealer. Sometimes they don't, and there's still...

    So lets say I am going to fill up my dehydrator with some veggies and when they are done I place them in a zip-loc bag, after squeezing out all of the air. So this method gives me a year or so of storage time? What if I was to place multiple zip-loc bags inside of a Mylar bag with an Oxygen...
  12. Food and water
    Hi friends, Am thinking of portioning white rice, dried beans, rolled oats, etc. into two-person servings and using my vacumn sealer to remove all the air and seal them up tightly. Was then going to place them into HDPE2-compliant containers (i.e. 5-gal. pails with Ropak lids) and use some of...
  13. Food and water
    I am new to prepping but I have been reading up on it for quite a while. I finally started accumulating supplies (prepping on a budget). I have a prepping partner who I do a fair amount of trading with and we pool our resources to get things done, like today. We each provided food and split...

    Where is the best place to buy mylar bags? Not the cheapest but the best quality. I ordered some from E-bay and all of them had small holes in them. Thanks
  17. Food and water
    I have a question. I am storing rice and grains for the first time with mylar bags. I am buying the big 50 pounds bag of rice and beans. Do I need to do something to the food first like freeze it to kill them wevils or will the lack of oxygen once sealed from the oxygren absorbers do their job...
  18. Food and water
    I have been checking into the mylar bags for beans, oatmeal, flour and such. But, I presently vacuum seal a lot of stuff. I understand about the o2 absorbers, but how does that compare to no air or o2 at all?
