Our base beer kits are formulated to produce 8 litres of beer or around 14 pints. A 12 litre fermenting bucket is the perfect size to ferment your beers, there is enough head room to allow the yeast to foam up without overflowing.
Food grade plastic fermenting buckets have a number of benefits for brewing beer. Our fermenters are supplies with a grommet in the lid to fit an airlock which means, during fermentation carbon dioxide produced by the yeast is able to escape whilst oxygen cannot get into the fermenting bin and spoil the beer. The foam and mess created during primary fermentation is much easier to clean off than in enclosed fermenters like demijohns. The white fermenting bin also prevents the beer being exposed to light which can create unwanted flavours in the finished beer.
These 12 litre fermenting buckets are made of sturdy and durable, food grade polypropylene. An airlock is not included, they can be bought here.
