Ok I'm planning on doing some crush and strain on my honey combs, I bought Lowes 5 gallon buckets and a paint strainer bag to accomplish this task. Is there any issue with using the Lowes (possibly non-food grade) buckets? I do not plan on storing the Honey in the buckets any longer then it takes to run it through the sieve. If I have to go and buy Food grade buckets I will however I have the supers in the house and if I put this off too long I'm afraid the wife will have me and the supers out in the yard!

some of lowe's buckets are marked food grade, they cost like a buck more.... you can likely get away with the regular bucket if the honey is not in it more than a day or 2.
