Plastic Fermentation Buckets with a spigot for fermentation or bottling are the way to go! Easy to clean, easy to carry, and easy to transfer. Does not include spigot.
This six gallon food-grade bucket can be used for fermentation or bottling. To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional spigot, lid, stopper, and an airlock.
Be sure to be careful when cleaning this bucket, not to use any abrasive pads that would scratch. Once you get a scratch in a plastic bucket it is very hard to sanitize. This is also why we don't recommend storing equipment in a bucket between uses as a fermenter. A hot PBW soak is often a perfect way to clean a bucket, followed by a Star San soak for killing bacteria.
Buckets are translucent and do not come with lids.
Buckets are not designed to hold pressure.
Lids are not gasketed and so do not always form a perfect, airtight seal. Not intended for long-term storage.
Food-Grade to 180 F
