I make most all of the beer I drink and the homebrew supply store has these 1-gallon food safe buckets that they put liquid malt extract into. Most all of the chickens I brine that are 5# or less, go into one of these buckets with Pops brine for 24 hours. Works great, fits in most refrigerators, and they don't leak when someone gets rowdy in the frig. That makes the wife very happy! Thumbs Up Out of the brine and into the heat!
