So. I’ve been searching for some gallon jugs to use as fermenters.
We have an abundant fruit crop at our new house (blueberries, grapes, crab-apples, raspberries, nectarines…) and I want to try some 1 gallon experimental brews. I have one (1) one gallon jug and three half-gallons in my homebrewery.
So, I set off to find some more. Damn! Those things are expensive. LHB store didn’t have any (I’m checking a few more places) and I can’t stomach Carlo Rossi. I even found a natural food store with apple cider in gallon glass jugs and bought one - $10!!!
I did spot some large pickle jars that would be awesome, at least in their size.
Problem is - the lids. Are they airtight? Could I trust it? Anyone try this? Maybe I can modify it, or try something to get this to work, because the size is great.
