I know the family which owns a local chinese restaurant near me. They have very many buckets which they toss regularly. The other day they gave me a Kari Out co. bucket at one time used for duck sauce, it appeared to have oil and red pepper in it when i opened it up some of which appears to have stained the plastic.
Other than that, the bucket is in good shape and has a liner in the lid which is good, it smells very faintly of oil (think of those little crispy things they give you with soup).
I no longer have my dedicated brewing bucket and nearest LBS is over 30 minutes away but would like to make a small batch of beer and have everythinf else necessary.
What would the risk be by using this container for primary fermentation?
