4.2 / 5.027 ReviewsNot reccomendedWon't close without pounding with hammer. No gasket, so seal comes from interference fit, therefore beat it on. Also, if lid had segments in the rim, a gasket, and less interference it would probably work. I covered bucket w/plastic and weighted lid with bricks. Did not know lid wouldn't fit till ready to seal and air lock! arrrrghNovember 24, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoLeaks around the edgesOrdered this at the same time as the 6.5 gallon fermentation bucket. The hole was drilled well and the red rubber grommet was well inserted and created a great seal with a 3-piece airlock that I also ordered. However, the lid does not create a good seal with the bucket. When I have the lid as tight on the bucket as it will go (to the point of pounding it on with a rubber mallet, I can still push down on the lid and have about 1/8" of give with no resistance. I have a strong feeling that CO2 is leaking around the edges of the lid, rather then going through the air lock. Unfortunately, I didn't discover this until I had already brewed a batch, transferred it to the bucket and put the lid on. I'm hopeful that the first batch of beer I'm brewing in this setup turns out ok. When I lifted the lid a crack, I could see CO2 activity and the wort has developed a good, solid 1" head, but there is no bubbling activity in the airlock. Gave it 2 stars instead of one because at least it's keeping bugs and dust out of the wort.September 8, 2017Lid for Plastic Bucket is a Bucket LidThis bucket lid is plastic and is a plastic bucket lid. It looks just like the one in the picture. It is a bucket lid alright. The hole and grommet are obviously installed by professional grommet installers. It fits the bucket quite well.May 25, 2017Purchased
over 2 years agoUseless. Check your local hardware store for a better lidMay 1, 2017terrible leaking lid w/no gasket, look elsewherethis lid is terrible in it has no rubber sealing so it leaks around the lid. Try to find a lid that has a rubber seal.August 30, 2015Does not sealI have a few of these and none of them hold a seal. There is nothing worse than starting a ferment and not seeing the airlock bubble. I think that nothing is happening, but I've learned that the fermentation is fine, but the CO2 is escaping through the bucket seal. After two weeks when I take a hydrometer reading the fermentation did in fact finish, but I don't like not seeing the fermentation activity with the airlock. I've used lids with the rubber seal and they work, but I don't have any for the buckets that I use for beer. I need to get the lids with the rubber seal or else put a sealing tape around the lid with these._x000D_May 28, 2015I 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, 2013Seals tightlyThe seal has a small rubber ring in it to keep it air tight. I had to push the little ring in in a couple spots before I put it on my bucket but after that it all worked well.October 15, 2013Fits the bucket very tightlyThese fit so tightly they are hard to get on or take off. thats a good thing because if you were to tip over a full bucket the only loss would be what comes out of the air hole. I keep beer in the bucket for a month and haven't noticed Oxidation issues.September 18, 2013Hard to get off, seals decentThis works well as the top to a plastic fermentor. It is hard to get off, by hand. You may want to get the tool for that. I have not had a problem with it being airtight during fermentation. Be careful not to push too hard on the grommet with the airlock. It could fall right into your beer.July 23, 2013

However, you can use the cylindrical portion of a three-piece airlock in conjunction with a siphon hose to produce a blowoff assembly given the current lid design.
