Experts recommend 300 lbs. of grain per adult for a one-year supply. Sixteen buckets of grain add up to 300 pounds. I chose to store 10 buckets of wheat plus one bucket of each of the grains listed.
Calculating Wheat in #10 Cans
If you have already purchased wheat in #10 cans, these calculations can still help. One #10 can holds 12 cups of wheat. Measure out two cups of wheat before you start grinding. In this way you can plan to use a #10 can per bread recipe. The two cups can be stored each time you make a bread to use later.
1 recipe of bread per week = 52 cans a year.
52 cans divided by 6 to a case = 8 cases a year.
