27 March 2020 8.30am: Please assume we are unable to send orders until further notice due to the Covid-19 Lockdown which currently restricts freight services to essential supplies only.

You can still shop! No payment required yet.  Shopping early will prioritise your purchase when we are able to ship again. When you go through the checkout process you will be able to place your order and the only "payment" option is "order now, pay later".

Our unlimited email support for customers continues during the lockdown because we are home-based.  If you did not purchase your products at makewine but require advice you can still purchase advice at our home winemaking advice page and of course browse our how to make wine at home pages for information.  Genuine pre-purchase enquiries are of course welcome.

If you are harvesting fruit you can freeze it for making wine once you are able to access supplies.  If making 5 litre batches we suggest you freeze in 2kg lots.  Most fruit can be frozen whole but do remove any bad spots.

New 20 litre food grade plastic bucket with airtight lid

20 litre food grade plastic bucket with airtight lid. AKA pails or polypails.

 

About 41cm height and 30cm top diameter

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.

 

Wholesale rates for lots of 8 x 20L food grade buckets and lids.
