The Use of PETE Bottles for Storing Grains

Lately I have seen many comments on the internet about storing wheat and other grains in old soda bottles.  Research from Brigham Young University verifies that this a viable method of safely storing food.  The following test results show that PETE bottles (recycling number 1) when used with an oxygen absorber will retain low oxygen percentage for at least 12 months.  This will kill any bugs that are in the grains.  The following is the report from BYU.
