Hmm, you could easily drill a hole, add a grommet and then an airlock. Why not use this 6G pail as a fermentor too.

Are you referring to the plastic cubes I linked above? If so, the opening takes a #11 stopper, or there's threading in the lid. Open the hole and you can either put in a smaller stopper (#4, maybe?) or a pipe thread-to-hose barb fitting for a blow-off. Just need to buy an extra lid so you have one that seals and one to drill out.

You can use a 5 gallon corny. Brew a higher strength 3.5-4 gallon batch and just top up post fermentation to 5 gallons with water in the keg.
