Christmas deliveries and hours: Last day to order to get your deliveries by Christmas for urban areas: North Island-Thurs 21st, South Island-Wed 20th. Rural can take severa days longer. Note these dates are aligned with delivery targets and are not guarantees.
We will be open over the Christmas break, but freight providers do not work on statutory holidays, so no deliveries will take place on statutory holidays. We may not despatch orders containing yeast immediately to avoid yeast sitting on the network over a weekend or long weekend.
We will be answering support queries over the Christmas period within the 24 hour service standard. However it may take longer than usual.
Hot weather and delivery timeframes: With this very hot weather we are experiencing we may avoid sending items containing yeast over a weekend. If relevant please include delivery instructions which avoid leaving orders including yeast sitting in the sun. Thanks for your understanding.
Merry Christmas! Thanks for your business in 2017 and here's to a wonderful 2018.
20 litre food grade plastic bucket with airtight lid. AKA pails or polypails.
If you're not making wine in it - they're also great for storing food or water!
Once you've made a couple of batches of wine you will find that having more than 1 bucket is very handy! Makes storing your smaller equipment easier, as well as straining and aerating your wine.
This can also be used as your fermentation vessel instead of a jar / carboy / demijohn as a more economical solution. Drill a hole in the lid, add a rubber grommet and insert your airlock in the grommet. But not recommended as a vessel for maturing or storage of your wine.
There is a tamper evident teartab on these buckets. This makes them suitable for packaging products for sale. The tear tab will need to be removed to take the lid back off the bucket.
Sometimes the lids are a tight fit and you may need to pour hot water over the lid to soften (especially the first time), and a bucket opener (select using the right hand side drop-down box) may be useful to open. The lid will generally stretch & soften fractionally with use which is enough to be able to open and close more easily. The buckets are commercial grade so the ease of putting on and taking off the lid will always be much harder than say a domestic kitchen product.
