Description

Why do home winemakers love using a bucket to ferment and bottle from? EASE! 
 
Going from spigot to bottle will reduce the time your wine is exposed to oxygen. It’s easier to control filling bottles than with a siphon. It’s easy to clean, easy to carry, and easy to transfer. You will love our six gallon, food grade bucket with built in spigot and external volume markings up to five gallons.
 
The outlet barb accepts 3/8" ID vinyl tubing.  To use as a fermenter you will need to pick up the optional lid, a stopper, and an airlock.  Includes our new Sediment Block Spigot, which will help minimize sediment uptake as you rack after fermentation.  If using this as a bottling bucket, simply rotate the internal portion of 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 could scratch the interior surface. 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 usually all you need to clean a bucket after fermentation. 
 
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

David C on Jul 27, 2020
Actually plan on using it to fill canning jars when make tomatoe saúde. My only concern is where the spigot opening will be too small.

Kenneth S on May 18, 2020
Priming the bucket just seems like a smarter idea than priming all the individual bottles, and the spigot should make bottling easy

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 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

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.

Great Quality Bucket with Spigot
Great quality, arrived fast & in good condition. Bucket exactly as described. I plan on using it in the next few weeks when Roma tomatoes ripen. I’m making tomato sauce from a recipe I found on YouTube that used a fermentation bucket with a spigot to fill canning jars.
