Only problem is that at 5 gallons, you'd better have a good setup! I usually put my bottling bucket on the ground, then rack from the Tower of Fermentation, then carry that bucket upstairs to prepare to bottle (it nicely distributes the priming sugar). My bucketis 6.5 gallons though, so I have plenty of "slosh" room. At 5 gallons, you're going to spill if you move it so you'd better be able to rack to the bucket, then from bucket to bottle without moving the bucket.

without the spigot, they would make nice bulk grain storage containers.

FYI, all three of my "name brand" brew buckets are HDPE #2 plastic... no problems with them. Dont be too worried about oxygen contamination through the plastic...

These buckets will make decent secondaries and great bottling buckets.

You can fit a variety of tubing to the spigot too. I have one of these on my boiler.
