Well, technically yesterday now, but I added gelatin finings to my strong pale ale in cold conditioning. Cleaned two kegs and sanitized them after adding epoxy mixer inserts to the liquid dip tubes, sealed them, passed sanitizer through the liquid lines all in prep of upcoming transfer of two 5 gallon batches from cold conditioning to keg.

Yes they are! That big yellow sticker on them says Food Grade, Safe for Liquid, BPA Free, Blah Blah Blah (sorry about the blurry phone pic), and the plastic recycling triangle is labeled 2.

I think they ran me about $5 each for the bucket and lid (buy more than 5 at a time and you save on ‘contractor pricing’). The lid is really nice, has the rubber o-ring and is a real pain to get off which I assume means it’s a good seal. Haven’t fermented or secondaried in one yet but I assume they will be real nice for that purpose assuming you have the correct headspace. I think I will be using 3 of these when I do 12 to 13 gallon batches. Also will be nice for apfelwein and skeeter pee so I don’t have to tie up my beer/wine primaries.

Today I am going to buy at least 6 more so I can split up those full sacks as well. I don’t like or advise leaving those bags out, especially once they are opened.

That's awesome !!! One guess where I'm going in a little bit. How pounds will each container hold ? I have about 100 or so lbs to store.

Just by looking at the 2 buckets stacked on eachother next to the sack it looks like it can hold around 20 pounds.

I sampled and dry-hopped my Citra Pale Ales. I made a 10 gallon batch and split it between a bucket and a carboy. I used rehydrated us-05 in the carboy and a washed WLP001 in the bucket. The carboy smelled like orange-grapefruit juice and tasted wonderful. The sample from the bucket smelled like bubblegum, but did not taste like bubblegum. I'm not sure if this is a quality of Citra hops or a result of poor yeast health/underpitching.

Yeah melevolent was pretty close, its usually closer to 25 lbs of grain. Excess goes in ziplock bags and gets used first.
