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, or angle the spigot to not point directly downward when not in use.

Please note: the spigot hole comes pre-molded into the bucket and needs to be drilled out before installing the spigot. We recommend using a 5/8" drill bit and taking care not to strip the female threads that accept the spigot. The spigot includes a back nut that won't be needed—simply remove the back nut and thread in the spigot with the gasket in between the neck of the spigot and the bucket. The lid forms a very tight seal and requires a decent amount of downward force to lock in place.

It's a larger size than we can get locally and the low-porosity material is a big plus - we use fermenter buckets for a lot of different things on our farm because they are economical containers for liquid feeds and supplements.

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.
What is the diameter and height?
Jason Shaffer on Jun 24, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The approximate dimensions are: 15.75" Wide x 16.25" Tall
what are the dimensions of the bucket?
Frederick Grothkopp on Aug 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Don't forget the lid! And then plan ahead for airlock! My measurements (with lid) and WITHOUT airlock were about 17" high, and 16.5" wide... I tend to err on the side of "too big measurements" when using this hand-measuring tape.
what is the part number for a replacement lid?
Jeff Dahlseid on Feb 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello Jeff, the part number is FE357B.
Lid for 7.9 gal Plastic Bucket (FE357A)
Lid for 7.9 gal Plastic Bucket (FE357A)
Does the circular lid include a gasket around the rim to be airtight?
Matt Telfer on Sep 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: There is no gasket but it does form a tight seal.
Do the buckets now come uncut? My previous order had the holes already but but there were some jagged pieces left and I'm concerned that those are becoming breeding grounds for contamination.
James Jacobson on Aug 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The bucket I received a couple months ago did not have the hole cut for the spigot. Off topic and may not be an issue for most but I did have to use a rubber mallet to get a good seal when putting the top cover on.
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 bucket is definitely semi-translucent. I am using mine at the moment, and I can easily see the level of the liquid through the wall of the bucket. I like the bucket, but I keep it covered to keep the light out.
What temperature is the bucket rated for? This is the 7.9 gal polypropylene bucket.
Leland Brooks on Feb 8, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The maximum recommended operating temperature for polypropylene is 180°F (82.2°C). Beyond this temperature, the performance values of the material may be compromised.
What is the part number for the replacement spigot?

Spigot issues, but great overall.
I had to cut a small portion of the tip of the spigot, for bucket to sit level on counter surface.

I also had to wrap the threads with electrical tape (3 times around) in order to make a tight seal.

Otherwise, very pleased with size, durability, utility. Love the volume markings, extra room for fruit melomels.
In use, after slight adjustments.

Bucket is good, lid is crap
The bucket is well made and I like the handles. I guess I will use it to store grain, because the lid is crap. Won't seal even after almost standing on it (200+ pounds). I can't use it as a fermenter.

Great little Bucket
I didn't use the spigot , cause I just set on my workbench in the garage it's a little cool out there so I tape a seed bed warmer to it with a variable switch that I picked up online cheap

I love these buckets for fermentation. Its nice having the grommet already installed. The airlock is nice too. I have had some trouble with the spicket install. Just as you get it tight , it pops on the threads and lets go. I have added silicone and stop just before it pops.

I like the design, but the spout is junk and poorly located and has too loose of a fit to leave it sideways as suggested.. The two piece spout that allows the spigot to turn would greatly improve the system. I drilled a hole higher up so the spout would clear the floor / counter top. The extra space above high gravity beers is great.

Happy with this purchase
I bought this as a primary fermenter for 5 gallons of wine and it is a good size with plenty of headroom for expansion. My only complaint is that the spigot extends below the bottom of the bucket so if the bucket is placed on a table or countertop, it either has to propped up or positioned so the spigot hangs over the edge.
