I think these are knock offs however... they apear to be 5.5 gallon graduated buckets with a sticker on they which says in fancy letter... "Ale Pail
" in all black letters... But if i remember right Ale pails are 6.5 gallon.... But they are #2 approved chem free, food grade real thick #2 HDPE plastic just like the real thing... I thing so im not complaining... for 8$ a piece... I dont have a pot big enough to make a 6.5 gallon batch, just bearly big enough to make a 5 gallon batch for primary so its alright with me, and you cant beat that for brewing approved buckets
Also saw some 7 gallon buckets claiming to be made from clear PETE for about 17$ a piece with lids... you might check and see if its still there...
