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.

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 to 180° F

How long should I use a bottling bucket? I could just replace my spicot that broke . But not sure how old my bottling bucket is and might should just replace bucket too.
jeremy brown on May 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We recommend replacing a bottling bucket about once a year or after maybe 25 batches. If there are any visible gashes or scratches on the inside you will want to replace it immediately. Otherwise you can give it a good sniff and if it smells fine it's probably fine for at least another batch or two.
What are the dimensions of this fermenter?
Jeff Haas on Apr 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Heighth - 17 3/8" Diameter - 12 1/2" at top 12 7/8" at widest part of the valve that i have on (my valve is not original to bucket but i believe is fairly similar..original one likely a bit less. Cheers
What size tubing should be used for transfer? 3/8" is too small.
John Baker on Feb 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I used the 3/8 stick theend of it and hot water for a few seconds it will soften it up and you can push it on it will be real tight but as it cools it was make a leak-proof seal

Nice bucket, but...
It's nice and I love the spigot with the debris block and how it can rotate. the bucket is a bit on the thin/flimsy side. good thing it will only be used for bottling.

Decent Bucket
Bucket itself is good, I like the way you can see through the bucket and tell exactly how much is in it. The thin handle was all bent up during shipping, and I don't trust that it will continue to hold 5 gals of beer while I'm moving it around. Needs a more sturdy handle.

Great bottling bucket
Perfect for bottling home brew. Volume markers on the side are most helpful.

It was missing the white screw on piece to keep the spigot in. Will have to order a new one. Other wise it seems well made.

Spigot gasket
The gasket that came with the spigot was broken. I didn't notice it until the liquid started to seep out of the hole. It didn't leak much and dried up enough to seal it. I would like a new unbroken gasket.
