Description

A six gallon food grade bucket for fermentation or bottling with a built in spigot and external volume markings up to five gallons.  Outlet barb accepts 3/8" ID vinyl tubing.  To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional lid, stopper, and an airlock.  Includes our new Sediment Block Spigot, which will help minimize trub uptake as you rack after fermentation.  If using this as a bottling bucket, simply rotate the spigot to maximize product output.  Spigot includes gasket and sediment blocking lock nut and can easily be removed for cleaning and sanitizing.

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

perfect for secondary or racking

Because bottling directly from the carboy from a syphon is a hassle.

Disappointed
Bucket only came with 1 gasket for the spigot. Every other bucket I’ve purchased had two, one for each side.

Um, it's a bucket...
Nothing fancy. I use it for measuring boil water, cleaning, and for bottling. The faucet could be lower so I don't have to tip the bucket during bottling.

Pricey, but Works
I was suspicious of the plastic spigot until I used it. It has a solid open and close, no leaks or spills. I'd note as well that I've never had any difficulty with off tastes from any of these plastic buckets.

Have had two of these for over 4 years
We only use for bottling; sometimes for sanitizing other brew day tools. They've been great, have even loaned them to friends who don't have bottling buckets and they've stood the test of time

Great bucket, icky lid
I love that the bucket comes with the spigot and it is all ready to go for you the moment you get it. I docked one star due to the fact the lid is a little shotty compared to some of the other bucket and lids on the market

It's a good bucket
I use for initial ferment before transferring into a secondary fermentor. Easy to clean and take apart.

Such a great bucket
What else can I say. It's a bucket. Spigot seals good, no leaks. I use it for fermenting and I don't plan on going into carboy's. I will probably stick with these buckets for a while. Plus no nonsense when racking.

Quality bucket at a nice price
You will be better off using this for bottling rather than for fermentation. But it does a great job for both tasks. You just have to be careful with scratches when using for fermenting as they can hide nasty stuff that will ruin your beer. Glass won't scratch but is fragile so there are trade-offs.

If you add another spigot you can cut your time spent bottling in HALF!

Also useful to catch spills during your brew day or to collect cooling water for distribution among your garden or yard. Your hops will grow 2x as tall if you water them with water used in the brewing process*
*there is no evidence to support this claim.

Works well...but
Bucket and spigot are great but the lid doesn't have a gasket so it doesn't seal completely airtight.
