Size 6.5 gal buckets (7 gal to the brim) 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 are a number of handy fermentation charts on the side.  The buckets are about 18.5″ (47cm) tall, with a 1/2″ base so there is 18″ of room for your juice.

Even if you already have one having an extra 6.5 GAL food grade fermenter sure comes in handy when you need to add capacity to your home winery or brewery.  Someone called and is coming over with some strawberries they lucked into? You are covered!  Want to run more than one batch at once?  You are covered!  This is a brand new 6.5 gallon fermenting bucket with brand new unslit fully gasketed lid drilled and grommeted for the airlock which is included.  Bucket is has gallon and liter markings, handy ABV target scale, and child safety warning on the side.    You get everything shown!
