Next purchase is likely a brewbucket...


Me,too.

Is it pressurable?


Enough to closed transfer out of it. That's what I'm after.

Could you use the little English words to explain what you mean to a twerp like myself?

Ok - you can apply pressure to the vessel in order to 'closed transfer' (via tubing and not exposed to air) to your keg. A good thing in terms of reducing O2 exposure to your beer.

How? Does it have ball lock connectors?

That is one reason I am glad I went with their Chronical fermenter.  It has a 3.5" tri-clamp fitting on the top.  The Brewbucket only has a hole for a blowoff plug.  So with their pressurized transfer fitting which releases pressure at 2-2.5 psi, it works really well.

The liquid out tubing from the fermentor can be connected to a liquid keg disconnect using a barbed swivel nut. 

On the gas side, you have a few options, including connecting the keg gas out tubing to the hole in the lid using a stopper or attaching a keg gas post to a stopper.  You can do a closed loop transfer or you can use a bit of CO2 pressure to assist if you go the gas post route (which is what I've started doing).

See the pictures in link that The Beerery posted above or pictures of my set up in the link below.

I want to convince my homebrew club to buy something like this but the cheap bastards want to go plastic.

Happy news, the brewtan b I ordered from Australia (ibrew) came today.  It was about 3 weeks total, maybe 2 since they shipped it.

Denny...since this thread has popped back up and I'm too lazy to go thru 65 pages to find this...

It's 1/4 tsp./5 gal. of mash water and,

none in the sparge water and,

1/2 tsp./5 gal. in the boil @ 15 min.,

is that right ?
