that i didnt know so what all i need for a 5 gal after that is to drill a whole for the air lock, and what else is 5 gallon specific? longer siphon?

i did have an unrelated question though, does one have to bottle beer? i know some sediment would be on bottom but couldnt you go through the bottling procedure and just leave it in a lidded bucket with a tap on it or something???? sorta like a 5 gallon bucket keg, is that even possible?

It would need to be able to hold about 12psi and bucket lids normally don't do that well. I gave a BeerBox set from beertools.com and it's a 2.75G box that has a tap on it. Reminds me quite a bit of the whole wine in a box thing but it uses co2 to fill the headspace and keep things pressurized. Perfect for small batch brewers. I naturally prime mine.

Don't be scared of homebrew......my advice is to find a way to brew 5 gal batches and enjoy yourself.

couldnt find the beer box, gonna explore so ways to make a bucket able to hold 12 psi with a lid or something, or maybe i can just have a spare grommet to put a siphon in it when im ready.

per my findings im seeing some screw top buckets sutiable for a decent amount of pressure. ill need a bigger siphon to get into ito a glass or just make a keg top out of some pvc or something like that and be set.
