30-gallon or 55-gallon water storage barrels are the best. I prefer the 55-gallon barrels, but the 30-gallon are probably more mobile. The 55-gallon drums can be purchased new from Water Tanks for about $50 each, including shipping (this is about the best price I have been able to find on the web). They are brand new, HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic, and never used, so you don't have to worry about possible contamination from previous food materials. The HDPE is thick, food-grade material, and would have to reach temperatures of over 185 degrees Fahrenheit before it started to leach even a little. With the thickness of the plastic, the inside reaching 185 degrees is very unlikely. Additionally, the barrels can be used for other storage purposes as well. They are extremely strong.
