Description

This is a 7.9 gallon plastic fermenter complete with lid, airlock, and spigot. These buckets are made from Polypropylene and are ideal for all types of fermentations, especially beers with high krausen.

Why 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.
 
Kit Includes:
  • 7.9 gallon plastic bucket
  • Plastic lid with hole and grommet
  • Airlock
  • Spigot

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.

Have 3 already, they work great. Spigot sticks below bucket, but twist it to the side and your good to go.

I have been using the bigmouth bubbler, but its cumbersome to move when needed. I have friends with the buckets and they are much easier to handle

how do you install the spigot?
Gabriel Meza on Apr 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: To install the spigot you will need to punch out the small piece of plastic on the bucket that is inside the threading for the spigot. Then you will want to apply some thread tape and screw the spigot in until it doesn't leak.
How do you punch out the small piece of plastic on the bucket that is inside the threading for the spigot? A video would be helpful. Thanks.
Michelle Edwards on Jun 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I used a step drill for mine. If you use a regular twist drill bit, it can grab when it finishes going through the last bit of the hole and possibly crack the thin wall of plastic around it. The step drill has a much less aggressive angle to the cutting edge so there was very little grabbing finishing the hole.

Use with caution
Bought 2, they need to improve the spigot attachment or offer a plug with the purchase. Easy to strip. Use caution when moving bucket to fermentation location, tapping spigot may cause you a mess!

Good value.
Nice buckets overall. Teflon tape helps with the seal on the spigot. The spigot ends up lower than the bucket of pointed straight down, but the bucket sits flush if you point the spigot at 7 or 730ish. If connecting a hose to the spigot for transferring this angle shouldn't cause issues but i haven't used the spigot yet. The airlocks seem more solid than the other 3 piece airlocks i bought before.

Nice bucket, but beware of spigot
I bought this bucket because I needed more headroom for a Belgian ale. Worked great. Lid seals well and is easy to open. Handles on the side make it easy to lift.

What I am not liking is the built-in threaded spigot receptacle. When in the upright position, the spigot sticks below the bottom of the bucket. If you want to set it on the floor, you have to unscrew the spigot an eighth to a quarter turn. I got some leakage around the threads when I did that--not very much, but not good. What is more troubling is that yeast has gotten into parts of the receptacle where I can see it but I cannot clean it. If yeast can get in there, so can less desirable microbes. That is REALLY NOT GOOD!

Using the spigot provided is optional. You have to drill out the wall of the bucket at the back of the receptacle to use it. I recommend not using the spigot provided. (You can order the bucket without the spigot.) If you want a spigot, drill a hole elsewhere for a generic spigot.
