4.8 / 5.017 ReviewsThe standardI have 6 of these in my homebrewery. Love them. You can't go wrong with them.December 22, 2015Good to have one for sanitizingI have one undrilled lid that I use for shaking the bucket when it's full of sanitizer._x000D_I don't have to hold my thumb over the opening.April 3, 2014Long term sanitizer storageI have a retired bucket (has some scratches and years of use) that I keep Star San in for when I needed. This lid is good because it's undrilled and keeps air and dust out and prevents the liquid from evaporating or losing strengthFebruary 18, 2014Lets me shake my bucketsWhen I need to sanitize my buckets I fill them with Iodophor, put this lid on, and shake. With a drilled lid, i have to awkwardly keep my hand over the hole, and afterwards the air pressure causes stuff to shoot out. This is easier._x000D_I can do the same when rocking my buckets to Oxygenate my beer.February 4, 2014My old lid tore/I was using the lid wrench and my old lid cracked and tore. Fortunately the new lid works just as well.November 11, 2013For aerating my wortI use the undrilled lids to aerate my wort. I add the wort in, seal the bucket with this lid, not one with a drilled hole and stopper, and rock like mad for a minute._x000D_No leaks and no wort coming out the air lock hole. Take it off and pitch the yeast. Then rinse it off and use soap and water to finish the job.October 1, 2013Holds on very tighlyIf you put the lid on and pound down, it will not come off if the bucket were to be tipped over. It holds like a bear hug, and takes a lot of strength to remove.September 10, 2013Great lidThese do not have a rubber seal on them, bu I've never had a problem getting an airtight seal. Great lid for the priceJuly 14, 2013Fits almost too tightlyIt fits tightly. So tightly I use a lid wrench to pop it off. I keep my star san mixed in a bucket and keep this lid on it so it doesn't evaporate or get dust. Its also an emergency back up in case a fermentor lid cracks.July 12, 2013good sealthis lid creates a very good seal but spend the extra money and get one with a pre-drilled hole and a grommet and you'll be a lot happier with your primary fermentation.July 2, 2013
