Default are 2 gallon fermenters available??

i know BB has a 3 gallon, but 2 gallon is the perfect size for me to peel off some side projects and i can't find them anywhere (damn you google!!)... (and no, i'd rather not do two 1-gallon jugs) glass or plastic doesn't matter to me..

2 gallon sizes here in plastic - http://www.homebrewers.com/product/5...cket-wLid.html

I did a google for 2 gallon fermenting buckets and 2 gallon fermentors and didn't come up with a lot of glass ones unfortunately.

Midwest sells the 2 gallon plastic buckets also. I think I'll make a bottling bucket out of one for 1 gallon mead batches. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/2-gal...illed-lid.html

Some folks are using Montana Jars....They come in all different sizes including 2 gallons.




From here http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/tepache-200053/

And here's info on turning one into a fermenter...


2 1/2 gallon Montana Jar Fermenter

Of course the metal lid in the one from the thread (from target) is important for making an airlock grommet space. Can't easily do it with a glass top.

HD sells #2 HDPE white paint buckets that are 2.75 gallons, around $3-$4 if I recall. They are perfect for fermenting 2 gallon batches. Just drill a hole in the lid for the airlock.
