6.5 buckets are much better than 5 or 6 gallon ones because you can make a full 5 gallon (19 Liter) batch in them without worrying too much about headspace.  A strongly fermenting 5 gallon batch will almost always foam or slosh over in a 6 gallon bucket but almost never does in a 6.5.  Buckets have a sturdy wire handle and are marked in one gallon / liter increments.  There is a handy fermentation chart on the side.  The buckets are about 18.5″ (47cm) tall, with a 1/2″ base so there is 18″ of headspace. Consider taking advantage of the combined shipping – order the 24″ x 3/8″ siphon kit that fits them well.
