Lowes Food Grade Plastic Buckets - good for brewing?
 
Hey all,

Do you guys think these food grade buckets from Lowes are good for brewing?

A 5 gallon bucket is only $3.97.

For a small batch, sure!

Does Lowe's sell matching lids?

I usually split an 8 gallon batch between 2 of these.

Yeah perfectly fine. I will also note that at least my local Home Depot also sells white food-grade 5 gallon buckets (and lids) for dirt cheap.
