1 year agoWine Making SuppliesThe fermentors have arived and I am in the proces of making my first large (six gallon) batch of red wine. So far, everything looks good and I am pleased with the products.February 20, 2016Perfect fitThis was the perfect lid for my first fermenting bucket. It was included in a kit and I couldn't locate the lid for kit anywhere that was sold separately. I just wore the old one out!January 28, 2016Holds air lock snuglyThe lids fit tight and hold the air lock snug. I always lose some beer to trub and racking and leaving the yeast laden dregs behind. No I make a 6 gallon batch instead o 5 and ferment in these bigger buckets. I get a full 5 gallons every time.February 25, 2014replacementThe lid that came with my bucket cracked so I had to get a replacement. Because its so big, there is more stress and now I am careful in how I pull off the tops.November 15, 2013Don't hold upI realized I had to be very careful when removing these lids because they crack. I pry them up slowly, a few inches at a time, and work my way around the bucket. I'm afraid to try my lid opening tool on them.September 24, 2013No ProblemsI own 2 of these. I do 2 batches a month for the past 2 years without a problem. I go bucket to bottle and use these as secondaries also (easier to clean).July 14, 2013Lid ReviewThe lid has a nice strong seal on the bucket, which I like, but because of that strong seal you have to be extra careful when you take it off or else it will break. I had half the lid off and just tried pulling it the rest of the way off and broke the lid._x000D_You have to work your way around the lid pulling it up just above the lip of the bucket until the whole lid is off. It is kind of a hassle, but I make it work.June 28, 2013Cracked lidThe lid cracked the first time I used it.. The last post I see was 9/18/10, why would they still be selling them?March 2, 2013Love the bucket, hate the lidThe plastic needs to be thicker because the lid is larger and there is more stress placed on it when opening. Mine cracked after several uses. I used duct tape as a stop gap solution.February 16, 2013
