Just got a case from the Costco for less than a buck a bottle. Score!

Must.... not.... buy.... more.... kegs....You're better off waiting for someone like AiH to run a sale on new kegs and buy multiple kegs in the $80 or less price range.
Like they have going on right now. I just picked up four 2.5 gallon ones.
Has anyone found a US source for small quantities of peracetic acid, about one liter size or so?I've not seen any, but ask "why?" - the stuff is nasty smelling. I'd rather use iodine or even bleach.
It is available to commercial breweries in 4.5 gallon size ($$).
I have found it in several non US homebrew shops easily.
I like these for moderate amounts. The gallon size can hold 4.5-5lbs. They are also available at Walmart if you don't mind shopping there.+1
I like 5gal food grade buckets with gamma lids for larger amounts. They stack well and can hold about 25lbs.
Vacuum sealing would get expensive if packing up a large amount of grain. Cheaper poly bags may work, but I don't know if home use sealers can seal them well.
That's probably fine for glass, & steel, but be cautious with plastic. HDPE can absorb fragrance oils fairly easily. If you soak for too long you could get a build up that might transfer over to the plastic. It's probably not enough to affect the taste of your beer, but I don't want any flowery perfume in my fermentors.Fantastic thinking. I now am a fan of oxy with smell. In the past I tried to find oxy free, but used oxy versatile if I couldn't find the free. Now I'm sticking with versatile and remembering your theoryI have bought the fragrance free type in the past, but these days I opt for the 14lb box at Costco and just rinse a bit better.My theory is that it's like propane gas. The fragrance is good. You know you've done a thorough rinse when the odor is gone.
