Plastic Wine Fermenter w/ Lid 7.9 Gal Master Vintner

SKU: MW-7135

The Master Vintner 7.9 Gallon Fermenting Bucket is the perfect primary fermentor for making wine, mead or cider. The additional head space you get from this fermentor makes for healthier yeast, a stronger fermentation, and ultimately a better beverage.

Volume graduation marks are printed on the exterior of the vessel for simplified measuring, and the lid comes with a rubber grommet to help hold your airlock securely in place.

NOTE: This fermenter is particularly important if you're making a Master Vintner wine recipe kit with skins due to the additional space the skins take up.

The best fermentor for the price!
I used to use the 6-6.5 gallon ale pails and 5 gallon foodsafe buckets from Menards but they are all gathering dust after I bought my first 7.9 gallon fermentor. I prefer to make 5.5 or 6 gallon batches so that I always have at least 5 gallons to keg after trub and yeast loss but I don't like having to use blow off hoses. These fermentors have enough head-space to accommodate all but my highest gravity brews worry free.

Bigger bucket
Great bucket. I like the extra room. What more can be said about a bucket. It's white and has a handle.

Great bucket
I absolutely love my Midwest 7.9 gallons fermenters...now that I have re-drilled the lids to use the small universal stoppers. I strongly suggest this become the standard...or at least an option. Drilling the lids myself is less than ideal, even with a good Forstner bit. I might even go to medium stoppers if Midwest would drill them for me. I use the bigger hole to pump wort in, aerate, pitch, sneak a peak/sniff, sample...and if it were bigger I'd probably shove my dry hop bags through like I do with my plastic carboys. Great buckets...treat them nicely and they'll last years. Here's 2 tips:_x000D_1) those plastic clothing hangers from the store with "notches" in the "shoulders" to hang strappy things with are perfect to slip inside the wire bucket handle and hang from a nail in my basement ceiling joists. I use starsan to "paste" a piece of paper towel over the hole...so when it's time to brew they are still as clean and dustless as when I put them away...just rinse and sanitize. (and NEVER stack inside each other)_x000D_2) when you snap the lid on, be sure to put the hole at 90* to the handle so you can move them without the handle hitting your air-lock. (sorry, kinda hard to describe in words)_x000D__x000D_Wish #2...screw on lids

Bad Lid
I purchased this in an order with my first wine making kit. It worked well and the wine was good. Worked the same with my second batch of wine however when I removed the lid the end of the lid cracked where the seal is and the "cut" perforations. I went to make a third batch and thought the wine was not fermenting but I later learned the CO2 was leaking out of the crack. I have just ordered a new lid. Lid is of poor use for this type of use as the perforations give the lid a weak point. Bucket works well though. Will keep extra lids on hand and will be very careful removing them from this point on.

Can a blow-off tube be used with this fermentor? If so, will it require additional accessories?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that will work. When I use a blow-off tube I will simply use a standard airlock without the insert and attach my blow off hose to the stem of the airlock.
How would you apply heat to this fermentor to maintain temperature in cold climates?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Rather than trying to apply heat or cold directly to the plastic I would control the ambient temperature around it. I find that depending on temp needed, I almost always have the right place somewhere in my house. Put glasses of water all over the place and then start taking temps throughout the day. I have a room in my basement that's perfect for lagers 8 months a year, a closet that is low 60's year round and another that's mid 70's as long as the heat is on. I then assume a fermentation free rise of 5-10 degrees and move the fermentor accordingly.
Can the gasket inside the lid be purchased separately?
A shopper on Dec 22, 2016
Is the lid included?
A shopper on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes......the lid is included with this particular plastic fermenter. The lid has a drilled hole with rubberized grommet for using with an airlock (an airlock is NOT included).
What size Airlock does this require?
C A on Jun 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would take a standard airlock like the S-bubble or 3-piece.
