Hi guys,

I am getting ready to do my first 5 gallon batch. Going to make a bucket of star san to have ready. Should the bucket be a food grade bucket if I plan to keep it for a while or is a regular home depot bucket ok?

I can't imagine it matters. As long as you're no drinking it, i'd imagine non-food grade would be ok.

Bucket should be capable of holding liquid. If it does that, you're good.

If you want to keep it for a while, the only criteria governing your choice of buckets is that it should have a lid.
