I will be interested to see the results.  Does the top of the bucket come with that bucket or did you just have the right size bucket to match the top.

The bucket is a lowes 2.5 gal paint bucket. It's in the paint dept. The handle makes it easy to pull out. I think it galvanized to resist rusting.

United Solutions Lowe's 2-Gallon Residential Paint Bucket   


The top is a 10" valve cover top in the irrigation, sprinkler dept. the regular paint top cover is to hard to remove. So I chose to use a valve cover top. Easy on, easy off. I couldn't find it on the website, but it's there. This is the nearest item that describes what I talking about without confusing you.

I put into the carrot and homemade sunflower milk pulp into the vermicomposting buckets in the mid part of January. I filled them to the top because I had too much pulp and haven't set up my compost bins yet. this a great reduction.

I still need to do the actual consumption experiment, so don't get upset at me. I will get around to it.
