For buckets, Uline sells a 6.5 gallon pail with a slick ratcheting twist off lid from M&M industries. They're slightly more than a 5 gallon Homer bucket with gamma lid at about $15 each with a min order of 5. I pick them up will call in Waukegan to save shipping. I think Adman found that US plastics has them too and will ship singles.

Not to get too far off topic, but if you're interested in a straightforward, sessionable amber, I have had great success with Jamil's American Amber in his brewing classic styles book. Bill helped me brew (and drink) 10 gallons of that a few months back.
