Nope, and I've tried quite a few times. I did find 5 gal and 3 gal so what I do sometimes is make a 6 gal batch and split it up. 4 gal. wort in a 5 gal. bucket and 2 gal. wort in a 3 gal. bucket...

Lowe's now has white BPA free, food grade, 5 gallon plastic buckets. I think they are $4, lid sold separately. I drilled a hole in one, attached a spigot and use it for sanitizing. Not a bad deal.
