This is a 7.9 gallon plastic fermenter complete with lid, airlock, and spigot. These buckets are made from Polypropylene.
These buckets are made from polypropylene as it is less porous and significantly smoother than other HDPE fermenters. HDPE is porous and can harbor microbial activity making it more difficult to clean and sanitize. Being less porous, polypropylene also does not absorb aroma like HDPE so there is less flavor carry over from batch to batch.

Please note: some customers have noted in the reviews that when the spigot is fully threaded in, the barb end will be below the bottom of the bucket, which may require the bucket to be placed on a countertop or other raised surface, or angle the spigot to not point directly downward when not in use.
Please note: the spigot hole comes pre-molded into the bucket and needs to be drilled out before installing the spigot. We recommend using a 5/8" drill bit and taking care not to strip the female threads that accept the spigot. The spigot includes a back nut that won't be needed—simply remove the back nut and thread in the spigot with the gasket in between the neck of the spigot and the bucket. The lid forms a very tight seal and requires a decent amount of downward force to lock in place.
