A 30L (7.9 gal) food-grade plastic bucket. Ideal for all fermentations, but especially ideal for wine kits, beers that tend to have a high krausen (hefe) and any fermentation that is slightly too large for your 6 gallon pail. These buckets come molded with a threaded hole for a spigot to screw into. Our FE347 spigot threads in perfectly. 

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.

Approximate Dimensions: 15.75" Wide x 16.25" Tall

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.

I want to scale up the amount of mead I can brew in a single batch, and I need a better primary fermenter that's easier to clean and suspend fruit in than my carboy

Does the spigot hole come pre-drilled or can the bucket be used without a spigot?
Ben Davis on Apr 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The bucket does not come with the hole fully punched out. There are threads tapped into the bucket, but you will have to punch out the bottom of those threads to install the spigot.
Does this bucket come with a drilled hole or just a threaded boss that needs to be drilled? I don't really need or want a spigot, but need the larger volume bucket.
David on Apr 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi David - This comes with a drilled hole and needs a spigot.

I bought the buckets to store my sanitizing solution, but the lids, which are bought separately, do not snap on to the buckets. They just lay there loosely, not sealing the bucket at all. This was a big disappointment for me. Never-the-less, the bucket itself seems to be of good quality.

Decent bucket for the money
I’ve used this for making wine kits and they do just fine. The seal on the lid is questionable.

No Seal
The quality of the plastic is fine. Bought the lid with this and unfortunately, does not include a rubber seal in the lid like other lids I've purchased in the past for about the same money. I feel more confident with the seal knowing air is not leaking into the bucket.

Trouble getting seal
Bought the lid linked in description and have done 3 brews so far. Each one does not have airlock activity d/t poor seal with the lid. Otherwise it works well, spigot is nice as it has a have moon shape that allows for better control when avoiding the yeast/trub

Nice Bucket
I make 7 1/2 gal batches, and this is the perfect size for Secondary, cold crash etc. When I used it for a bottling bucket, I found the volume markings to off by quite a bit. Did my own calibration and it is great now.
