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.

Tip For Attaching the Lid:. The lid can be snapped into place by holding the lid at about a 45 degree angle to the top of the bucket. Pressing down with the base of your palm in one spot on the edge of the lid, this will 'Snap" the lid onto the edge of the bucket. After getting one portion of the lid in place, you can push and down and follow the edge of the bucket lid till you feel the snap in place, around the top edge. The groove in the lid matches up with the "Male" lip on the bucket, and just takes a small amount of force to get it clicked into place properly.

Just the right fit for my equipment
I purchased the first bucket trying to get more capacity in my re-purposed wine fridge (temp controlled fermentation chamber). It allows me room for the 6 gallon batches and an airlock in the fridge with sufficient space for the cooling airflow. The lid does take some work, especially the first time, but seems to attach more easily - may be because I am used to it now. I have now purchased a second one and also purchased the same model in the bottling bucket configuration. Definitely will purchase again as they need replacements or I come up with more temperature controlled fermentation space.

Easy Fermenter
It serves in many ways: measuring water, mixing sanitizer, and fermenting. The translucent plastic and measuring notches helps to hit the volumen of wort and beer. Highly recommended!

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.

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.
