Hmmm I recenetly fermented in a homer bucket from home depot and it worked just fine but I freaked out after the first 48hours because their was no airlock activity. Found out the lid is not air tight because it does not have a gasket. Would this be a problem if you used it as a secondary?

I'm doing it right now. I think as long as the bucket is filled all the way up there will be just enough pressure to keep most critters out. Adding the airtight lid (with gasket and screw-on top) is a good idea though.
