THIS ITEM IS ON BACKORDER
Item currently out of stock
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

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

what are the dimensions of the bucket?
Frederick Grothkopp on Aug 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Diameter 14 3/4 in. across the top. The handles stick out another 1/2 in. on each side.
Height 18 3/8 in.
is the 30 L bucket semi translucent, or opaque like many of the white HDPE buckets?
Frank Hruby on Mar 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This will be opaque like many of the white HDPE buckets.

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.
