DetailsOur 6.5 gallon bottling bucket comes complete with a pre-drilled hole, and the Fermenter's Favorites® bottling spigot for easy bottle filling.
Rack your beer, or wine, into this bucket, attach a length of 3/8" ID tubing to the spigot, place a bottle filler on the other end, and you're ready to bottle.
The large opening makes it easy to add priming sugar, fruit extract, or whatever just prior to bottling. The bottling bucket works well for wine too.

4.8 / 5.086 ReviewsMakes life easyI got this bucket with a beginner kit. It makes bottling so easy - no need to start a siphon or any other tedious things. Just open the valve and get to bottling.March 10, 2013The only way to bottle your beerIt's a real pain to bottle from a carboy or fermentation bucket. It's so much easier bottling from a dip tube connected to a spigot._x000D_Even if you use carbonation drops, it's better to first rack, then bottle from the bucket. You can pour in your priming solution, and mix it in gently, and get uniform carbonation. The spigot is perfect for the wider bottle filler too.March 14, 2013Easy to useCame with my beginners kit. Used it has my sanitizing bucket when brewing at first. Make sure to place tubing in warm water to make it easier to attach to spigot. Once I have the tubing and bottle filler attached, I turn on the spigot and go to work.March 19, 2013GreatMakes bottling really easy and less messy. Never had any leaks around spigot. Just attach a tube and you bottling wand to the spigot and you're set.March 19, 2013it works!!!The bucket works great for bottling. When you get below a gallon it gets to be a little difficult. But works great.March 21, 2013Nice BucketThis is a good bucket. I found similar ones but they seem to stain and scratch easier than this oneMarch 25, 2013Nice spigotThe thing I like best about this product has to be the spigot. It made bottling very easy and not near as messy as other products i have used! Definitely worth the money!March 28, 2013Couldn't do without thisWhen it comes time to bottle my beer, having a bucket with a spigot makes it all very easy. No siphon to start or get clogged. Just turn on the flow with a flick of a switch. The only complaint I have about it is that the spigot is about half an inch above the bottom of the bucket, so, unless I have some trub at the bottom, I miss out on a fair amount of beer, and it requires me to lift/tilt the bucket while bottling._x000D_However, up to that last little bit, it works like a charm.March 29, 2013Works EverytimeThe spigot is nice. My favorite thing about this bucket is the gallon marks on the side. It helps to keep track of how many more bottles I have to fill.April 7, 2013EssentialI would hate to bottle without a bottling bucket. It is so much easier to hook a hose and bottle filler up to a spigot than trying to manage a siphon too. Some people complain about price, but you are getting a food grade bucket, a spigot, and some labor so it all works out.April 8, 2013
