4.2 / 5.027 ReviewsI really don't like this lidLid snaps on well and seems to stay on without issues; however, it does not create a good seal between lid and bucket. There is no rubber gasket to ensure a perfect seal. So what ends up happening is co2 gets out around the lid and not through the airlock. I would rather pay a few extra bucks for a lid that has a good rubber seal and ensure that no air is getting into my primary.November 12, 2013No rubber sealThese appear to be plan jane bucket lids with a hole. They DO NOT have a rubber sealing ring on the inside lip. I own two of these and neither seal on the 6.5 buckets well enough to bubble the airlock. It is leaking around the bucket seal as the lock gasket is well sealed. Switched out the lids with a standard rubber sealed lid and drilled a 9/16 hole for the airlock gasket. The airlock bubbles away.February 12, 2013Good replacementGood replacement lid. I had a bottling bucket/fermenter with a broken lid and another fermenter without a lid. It fit perfectly on the fermenter/bottling bucket sold by MW Supplies, but took a little effort to snap into place on the other two buckets. Once in place, the seal was perfect. Also, the drilled hole has the grommet installed for use with an airlock. The 3-piece I use fits snugly without the need for an additional stopper.July 14, 2012Great product_x000D_ I have lost my bottling bucket and fermenting bucket. I have several other buckets and I have a carboy 5 gal with rubber bung and airlock. The lid fit one of my other buckets just right and will be perfect for my next batch. I love Midwest, orders come quick and promt never any problems. Good work guys..._x000D_September 19, 2012Everything you need it to beGood replacement lid, fits snugly without issue. Pre-drilled airlock hole and rubber grommet included. Quickly delivered, clean, well packaged. Easier than going to the home improvement store and buying a paint bucket and drilling all the holes to make a brew bucket.October 15, 2012Its a lid, it worksThe only down side is it can be very hard to take off, especially when you first get it. You have to methodically go around the pail and lift it up a little bit._x000D__x000D_The lid pail wrench tool seems to damage the lid, so you have to do it by hand.October 17, 2012Keep an extra on handI have always kept an extra one of these lids in my brewery. It forms a good seal with my pale. No complaints.December 10, 2012Very hard to removeIt takes a lot of strength and patience to pull this off a bucket. I don't think the lid wrench works well, but I can see why people buy it._x000D_This lid maintains a good seal, and if your bucket is ever toppled over, it wont leak, except through the air lock, giving you time to stand it up again. No rubber gasket.December 11, 2012It's a lid!Lids are cool. This one works like a lid would, only awesome._x000D__x000D_There's no way to describe it. It's liddy goodness doesn't disappoint.December 17, 2012
