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. 
 
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

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

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

Full Of Scratches Inside
From the product description: "Once you get a scratch in a plastic bucket it is very hard to sanitize."

Mine was delivered with several scratches visible on the inside. It came as part of the Premium Home Brewing Kit with the kit parts and tools packaged inside the bucket. Evidently, the tools/parts bounced around during transit, gouging the inside of my new bucket.

Doesn't leak
Spigot doesn't leak, neither does bucket. So it seems good. Lid is gravity only, no sealing airtight. But you need a bottling bucket and it's cheap.

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.
