No i didn't. It did ferment some but the yest cake on the bottom wasn't as thick as 05.
It would have been fine had i not pushed the grommet through the lid. I wish my bucket lit was drilled for a stopper and not a grommit.
Picked up a Better bottle as my new primary. I will use my bucket for big beers and my 5 gal glass carboy for secondary/dry hop duties.
