This may be a dumb question but here goes. If I am using mylar bags to line the buckets then do the buckets need to be food grade? I would assume not since the material is enclosed in the bag and not in contact with the bucket.

Thanks for the input.

They don't absolutely have to be food grade. But are you absolutely sure that you will never need to use the bucket later on for carrying water, fermenting sourkraut or pickles, or perhaps using to store foods in directly? I've already used my buckets for all of the above.

Food grade buckets can be found cheap or free if you are willing to do a little detective work. Restaurants, delis, sandwich shops, donut shops, bakeries, ice cream shops, etc., all use them and often either give them away or charge a buck for them.

Just as a quick reminder. This topic has come up over and over and over again. A quick search would have turned up a bunch of threads on it.
