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.
This six gallon food-grade bucket can be used for fermentation or bottling. The outlet barb on the built-in spigot accepts 3/8" ID vinyl tubing. To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional lid, stopper, and an airlock. The spigot on this bucket can be rotated to block sediment, or it can be rotated to the wide open position for maximum output. Spigot includes gasket and sediment blocking lock nut and can easily be removed for cleaning and sanitizing.
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.
