Default Plastic bucket from Austin ?

I purchased plastic Fermenter 6.5 gallon from Austin with Lid. The lid does not screw on, or snap on. Is this normal? Will I be able to use if it doesn't screw on or snap on? I don't see any threads to screw on.

A dumb question I now. Just a little confused.

Anyone with same situation?

Thanks,

Mike

Send a pick of the bucket. Is it a Ale Pail or a TrueBrew Bucket? Is the lid blue? If it is any of those, then it shouid snap on. Some of em are just really tight and need a lot of pressure.

I have 2 of those exact ones and mine snap on. You have to apply some pressure to it. The lids can also be a pain to get off at times.

I tried and don't see how it snaps. Put all my body weight with negative results.

Are you pushing in the middle or around the edges? You gotta push pretty hard all around the edges to get it to go on.

Pushing on edges. Pushed all weight on edge. Don't really see how it will snap. I will keep trying.

IMO, their new lids are a pain in the butt. Once you do get it on, good luck getting it back off.....

I've heard some folks take out the seal thing to make it snap on/off a little easier.

You can also try cutting up where a couple of the notches are on the lid.

If it doesn't snap, will that mess up fermentation? I usually use glass carboy, but plastic bucket will fit in my mini fridge. I then can use my temperature controller.
