Mylar Bags:
Sorbent Systems, http://www.sorbentsystems.com/products.html
12.5 x 18 x 4.3 mils thick: Used to store 1 gallon of food in each bag.
20 x 30 x 4.3 mils thick: Used in 5 gallon buckets.


Oxygen Absorbers:
Honeyville Grains, http://www.honeyvillegrain.com
For my convenience, I only buy and store/stock 500cc absorbers as it is a common size that can do everything I need without the added expense of stocking multiple absorber sizes. However you can buy the size that suits you particular needs best.

Here’s how I generally use the 500cc size:
1-500cc oxygen absorber per pint canning jar.
1-500cc oxygen absorber per quart canning jar.
2-500cc oxygen absorber per gallon bag.
10-500cc oxygen absorbers in a 5 gallon bag/bucket.
