6 Gallon Bucket
A food-grade six gallon plastic bucket perfect for all kinds of home beer or winemaking activities. Plastic buckets are often used as a fermenter, bottling bucket, or even sanitizer bucket. We go through thousands which helps keep our price down. If you want to use it as a fermenter you will also need to pick up the optional lid, stopper, and airlock. This bucket is also available in a version that includes a spigot (see recommended products below).
If you use this plastic 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.
Bucket has external volume markings up to 5 gallons. 17.5" H x 12" Ø
