Default Brining question

What kind of bags should I use for brining large amounts of whole chickens? Specifically 20-40? Thanks!

I'd get a few new plastic garbage cans with lids.

If you have a walk-in cooler or large refrigerators, Restaurant Depot sells 50 lb food lugs, to make easy clean-up they also sell food lug liners.

No mess and you can close the top of the bag to seal while in refrigeration.

Your local brewing supply store should have large food grade containers intended for fermentation, fairly economically priced. You can wrap it with insulation and use frozen water bottles to keep your temps right for a day. When your done brining the birds you can use the fermenters for other stuff, after its been washed, like hard apple cider, wine & beer.

You can also hit up your local Chinese place for their used soy sauce buckets. It's a bit hard to get the soy sauce smell out, but that's likely a plus, depending upon your brine.

And, of course, they're free.
