With handles it's 17" diam.

Updated... posted below in another thread...

The lid can still close and sit flush with the bucket with a portion of the gasket out of alignment, and brewers are none the wiser unless there isn't action from the airlock some time later.

From the time you push the gasket in with lid off, turn the lid over to be placed on the bucket any portion of the gasket can come out of its well, but the unit will still completely close flush. Has to be some product (keg lube?) to hold it in place while you seal it?

After 16 hours on a 2nd generation yeast for a double IPA, entire basement smelling like beer, visible krausen level, had to be an issue with gas escaping. Took off entire lid, looked to have a 1-2 inch portion crimped out of the well squished against the wall. I re-seated the gasket, sprayed with star san, re-attach belt and airlock activity within a few seconds.

I have one of the 7.9gal models and it is an excellent product. It is very well made and the top can either be completely capped or used with their stopper and fermentation airlock. The only problem I've had: I like to use stainless steel tea strainers for dry hopping. I have two of these jumbo models from Amazon that are 5.5" in diameter. They will hold an ounce of whole hops and even more pellets. This weekend, I used this fermenter as a secondary and found that the tea strainer won't fit! I had to use a hop bag instead.

Its sad to see that they increased the price as much as they did. morebeer used to have them 40% less $ then the current prices.
