Before I used an aluminum bucket that would be use to hold champagne or beer on ice. Would this be ok to us for future brines?
I go to the bakery at the grocery store and ask for a bucket that had icing in it. They usually have some smaller buckets that had colored icing in it (2 or 3 gallon) that I use for smaller things or 5 gallon that I use for larger things. You know the buckets are food safe and all you have to do is clean them out and htey are ready to go.
