Description

  • Perfect for use as a 5-gallon batch beer fermenter or bottling bucket
  • Comes with a pre-drilled hole so you can pair it with the spigot of your choice—see recommended spigots below under "You Might Also Need"
  • Once you've upgraded to a carboy or other fermenter, the bucket will remain a reliable brewing tool for cleaning and sanitizing purposes
  • External volume markers provide a convenient reference point when filling the bucket with water to make cleaner or sanitizer solution

A six gallon food grade bucket for fermentation or bottling with a pre drilled hole and external volume markings up to five gallons. This bucket does not include a spigot. Our recommended spigots can be found below under You Might Also Need. To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional lid, spigot, stopper, and an airlock.

If you use the bucket for fermentation be sure to use care when cleaning. Do not 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. 

Please Note:

  • 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

I had a different use. I need to calibrate a fuel capacity gauge. The measurement lines in .5gal capacity makes it easy. Combined with the sediment block spigot.

Opaque but can still see liquid through it for measurement marks. Like the .5 gallon marks.

Works well
Decent price, and the measurement markings are really helpful. I bought a 1/2" nozzle spigot to attach to it, instead of the 3/8 (5/16?) one that comes with it.

Solid bucket.
I use this bucket for bottling. I wish the hole were a little lower; I have to tilt to bucket to get the last half gallon. Or I wish there were a spigot dip tube to solve this issue.
