AIH 8 Gallon Fermenting Bucket with Lid

Introducing the new AIH bucket, doesn't stain or retain odors. Lid is drilled with a grommet for the airlock. These buckets are made of a high grade silicone, polyproylen copolymer.

Has a threaded UN-drilled hole. Can be converted to a bottling bucket, by adding a bottling spigot. You will need to drill a 1/2" hole in the center of the threaded area, using both rubber o-rings to seal the spigot.

We also offer the AIH 8 Gallon Bottling Bucket.

Check Your Threads
This bucket comes with pre-tapped threads for adding a bottling spigot. However, the one I received was not tapped correctly and it was impossible to thread the spigot in, forcing me to drill a hole elsewhere on the bucket. If you intend to add a spigot, make sure you try threading the spigot before you drill the hole.

Great Bucket
Bought these buckets to replace my other buckets. The material seems a little softer, but they are much easier to clean. Fill it up with a PBW solution and the bucket is spotless in minutes. Once you figure out the lid, it's an extremely tight seal.

Snap the lid!
This bucket is truly awesome now that I know how to close the lid. If you think it's on it's not. You have to really push down and it will go on another 1/2 inch and isn't coming off. Then, there's only one spot to remove it.

Great product and price
These buckets are great and even better after you figure out how to put the lid on.

Awesome bucket!!!
I was thrown off by the lid not wanting to lock but as others have stated, once you get the hang of it, the lid is tighter than dicks hat band! I've got six and would love six more!

Best Fermentor For Price
I have 5 of these 8Gal fermenters, It works perfect for a 5 Gal batch of beer or 6 gallons of wine. They seal way better than brewer buckets and are cheaper too.

Head space!
As many have said the lid is tight fitting, but it does lock on. The best feature of this fermenter is head space. Standard 5.5gal going in doesn't come close to lid regardless of yeast used. I have 3 and plan on at least 2 more.

Bucket Lid Doesn't Seal
Good bucket but the lids don't snap on the bucket as I expected they would. I put a couple small weights on the lid and it was fine but I wish it snapped on.

Works as it should
I brewed a batch yesterday and it is fermenting away in this bucket. As others have said the lid is tricky. I thought it was defective at first, or screwed on, but you have to apply significant pressure to the edge to get it sealed. I haven't tried to open the bucket yet, so not sure how easy it is to open once sealed. The predrilled lid fits my bubbler nicely. The bucket also has a molded bottom piece in case I wanted to drill a hole and add a spigot on the bottom at some point.
