6 Gallon Bucket - Plastic

6 Gallon Bucket - Plastic

Item currently out of stock

A food-grade six gallon plastic bucket perfect for all kinds of home beer or winemaking activities. Plastic buckets are often used as a fermenter, bottling bucket, or even sanitizer bucket. We go through thousands which helps keep our price down. If you want to use it as a fermenter you will also need to pick up the optional lid, stopper, and airlock. This bucket is also available in a version that includes a spigot (see recommended products below).  

If you use this plastic 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. 

Bucket has external volume markings up to 5 gallons. 17.5" H x 12" Ø

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 up 180°F.

Just a Better Bucket
I like the more beer bucket because it's opaque so it's easy to see the beer level. Also the graduation measurements are right on the money. Other buckets I've purchased are solid white making it hard to see the liquid level and or the side graduations were off.
