I have several brews in on these and they work like a charm. There will be some condendsation on teh outside of the bag (in the bucket) but a quick rinse and all is good.

Filling the bag is still a little tricky and I have yet to find the best way to do it other than just do it. You have to manage the air release from the outside of the bag.

It's also kinda interesting too when you have pulled the bag, tied a knot in it and have set it aside, waiting to go into the trash, to have it inflate. Thankfully, the only one that has burst was in the trash. I have since been dumping the yeast into the compost.

I have yet to find any bags larger thanm the 18-24 pound but, they work with just a little cautionary effort at filling.

That is great, I have a bucket that i retired because of a few scratches. Now I will pull it out of retirement and put a bag in it.

My LHBS sells bucket liners for $1 each....doubt these are the same thing, but very similar. Ones i get are basically just plastic bags, but fit perfect, so i usually buy a couple when i'm in there. alot less clean up, and not worried about scratched buckets.

OK, Ed wort and others. I have heard from this thread and others you all say you use a bucket with a spigot. How does that work as a primary. It seems to me that the spigot would be useless for anything but for bottling as you would be sucking out the yeast on the bottom of the bucket. Am I missing something? I have recently went from Conicals back to carboys and was even considering going back to buckets because I could fit more in my fridge and they may be easier to clean.

The spigot is just above where the trub usually is, at least on my buckets.
