Fermenting bucket

default Fermenting bucket

Post by AngelinaJellyBeana on 20th June 2010, 2:43 pm

Got myself a fermenting bucket with lid in Wilkos today. There's no hole in the lid for an airlock - do I need to make one and stick a bung in?? If so, what's the easiest way to do it and best way to get a good seal round the bung.

Have only brewed in demi-johns til now but I want to do a bigger batch of elderflower wine this year. Have got everything ready to go.

The fermenting bucket is just for primary fermentation - while the pulp/flowers/fruit etc are still in the mix. Once you strain it off you need to transfer it to a carboy.

You can drill a hole in the lid and use a cork and air lock like you do a demi-john. Why buy another. also you need to keep fruit flies out immediately so best do it straight away.
