"First Time Fermenter"
(Palm Bay, Florida USA)
I bought this kit to make sauerkraut in wide mouth mason jars and it worked flawlessly. This is my first time fermenting and I was concerned about mold forming on the top but it was not a problem. The fermenting kit was easy to set up and use. I used Pickle Pebbles [[ASIN:B00V41EZNC Pickle Pebbles PLUS - Glass Fermentation Weights - WIDE MOUTH - 4 Pack]] on top to keep the cabbage submerged and they worked great as well. I like that I can store the sauerkraut in the jar where it fermented with the additional of the plug for the lid when it was ready to go in the refrigerator. This kit took the fear out of fermenting for me. Sauerkraut with live cultures is so expensive at the health food store so with just a few batches, this kit will pay for itself.
