(8) 6 Gallon Food Safe Buckets + Lids – $64 Shipped

Emergency Essentials Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids

Emergency Essentials has great prices on 5 and 6 Gallon Buckets and Gamma Seal Lids on Sale.  5 and 6 Gallon Buckets are available with either Standard Lids or with airtight Gamma Seal Lids.

For a limited time, Emergency Essentials is offering free shipping on any order of $50 or more.  Use code SHIP50 (all caps) in your shopping cart (not on the check out page).

That means you can get 8 food safe 6 gallon buckets and lids for just $64 including shipping.

I own and use the 6 gallon buckets with Gamma Seals for my primary grain and kit storage.  See my Hands on Review.  Gamma Seal Lids are a great upgrade.  You attach the base of the unit to the bucket and leave that intact.  The lid screws on and off easily.  No more prying lids.  These are also airtight.

My rule of thumb for grain storage is 5 lbs per gallon.  With that estimation two 5 gallon buckets would hold a full 50 lb bag and two 6 gallon buckets would hold a full 55 lb bag (plus a bit more).

From the description: “These buckets are different from what you will find at a hardware store. These are high quality, thick (90 mil) food grade plastic bucket, so there aren’t harmful chemicals that may affect your stored goods.”

These buckets are food grade so they could also be used as fermenters.  Just pick up an airlock grommet to add an airlock.  If you do that, I would go with the standard lid option, not the gamma seal option.

Today Only: FerMonster Large Mouth Carboy Sale at MoreBeer!


MoreBeer is discounting Large Mouth FerMonster Fermenters by $5 Today, 8/2/16, only.  Applies to both 6 and 7 gallon sizes.  That means prices start at just $23.99!  Shipping is also free with a $59 order.

Since MoreBeer’s cart accepts multiple promo codes you can get in on this and their Deal of the Day (while supplies last).

from MoreBeer… The Fermonster is a brand new fermenter designed specifically for fermentation. MoreBeer! gave product feedback for over 2 years of development and we think they nailed the design. The large lid allows for easy filling and makes hop or oak additions a breeze. The smooth sides are fantastic for sanitization – no ribs or texture to collect yeast or bacteria.  The 6 gallon size is great for most fermentations, and the larger 7 gallon is available for even bigger beers. The punted bottom allows sediment to collect to the sides so that you can siphon liquid from the center.  Because they are made from vigin PET plastic they nearly unbreakable and a lot safer than similar glass carboys. Also notice the conical top which reduces surface area if you plan to store beer or wine long term.

Made from heavy PET plastic, the same material used in 2 L soda bottles, which is nearly impermeable to oxygen penetration.  Due to the thicknes of the material and the overall geometry the Fermonster does not require ribs or dimples for stability.  That results in a super smooth interior surface that reduces yeast and sediment buildup making it the easiest to clean, most sanitary PET carboy on the market.  The huge 4″ opening makes filling a breeze, and cleanup is as easy as wiping down the inside.  Fermonsters are easily moved by hand or consider using our Carboy Carrier for even greater ease of use.

These fermentors are completely air-tight and the lids sealed tight with an O-Ring.  Additional O-Rings and Lids both with and without holes are available for purchase, see our You Might Also Need items below.
