Works great for my small batch beers
Using this for brewing 1 gallon batches. I brew 1.5 gallons in primary fermenter to get 1 gallon clean beer in secondary fermenter.

Careful with the lid
It is quite the task to get the lid off - Blame it on my brute strength, but I ended up ripping half of the bucket lip off with my lid after the first batch. I have two more buckets to go, which I'll be bottling next week. Hopefully I don't do the same thing to those.

Can this bucket be used for fermentation of beer as well, or is it just for wine?
Zach R on Dec 30, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The short answer is Yes. However; read on:

I strictly (so far) only brew one gallon batches of beer. It makes an ideal fermenter for small one gallon batches of beer and allows for ample head space. No need for blow off tube, just use an airlock. I purchased this bucket, a spigot, and grommeted lid with the intention of turning it into a siphon less fermenter (I hate siphoning!). However, the lids are only intended for one time use. I have tested this out and they do in fact leak air after the plastic strip is removed (noted on the website).

I decided I didn't want to purchase a new lid for every batch. So, I changed my plans and have used it several times as a small bottling bucket. It works great for that! I siphon the beer from my primary into this bucket, attach a bottling wand to the spigot with a short 2-3" piece of hose and bottle away. I brew/bottle alone, so without a helper it's almost impossible to fumble with siphon and bottling wand/hose at the same time.
Is the bucket marked with measurement lines?
rachael h on Dec 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Es but I wouldn't buy it. I tried brewing two batches and in both cases they didn't ferment at all. I suspect this bucket leaks air like crazy as I could smell it; I trashed it and returned to my carboys after that.
We just purchased this kit to make 5 gallon batches. Now, we are trying to determine what additional equipment will be needed to make a 1 gallon batch instead. So far we have the 2 gallon kettle, Little Big Mouth Bubbler and airlock (fermentation), and 2 gallon bucket (bottling) which I have referenced below. Is there any siphoning/tubing, etc. we will need for this smaller set up that we cannot use from the 5 gallon Brew Share Enjoy Starter Kit? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: I went from 5 gallon to 1 gallon brewing some time ago. Since then I have moved to 3 gallon brewing. My point is I'm working off of memory. From memory I think the only additional equipment I needed was the fermenting bucket. I also bought a 1 gallon carboy that needed a new rubber stopper but the airlocks from the 5 gallon still worked fine. I used the same hoses/tubing. As far as I can remember all I needed additionally was the 1) bucket. 2)carboy 3) rubber stopper for the carboy
Are these buckets reusable?
S C on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, there is a pull ring on the lid that has to be removed to open it the first time but it will still seal after removal.
How tall is this bucket
Tim C on May 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This bucket is 9.5" tall
I do not see a 2 gallon bucket available in the "beer" section but assume this would be exactly the same (except for the bucket logo). I'm looking for a bottling bucket for adding my priming sugar mixture and beer from 1 gallon batch fermenter (Little Big Mouth Bubbler). I do not see any small 2 gallon-ish buckets with spigot for easier transfer to bottles. Is this 2 gallon bucket the best option?

BEST ANSWER: That is the only 2-gallon pail, a person could modify it with a spigot to make themselves a small bottling bucket. Another option would be to siphon direct from the fermenter, and use the Fizz Drops that you put directly into the beer bottles before filling, so that the priming sugar does not need to be stirred in.
