2L glass Fido jar with rubber seal and clamps. Lid is fitted with rubber gromit and plastic 3-part airlock for fermenting. The airlock prevents fresh air from entering the fermenting jar but allows gasses to escape so you don’t have to worry about explosions! It also reduces the risks of contamination and mould growth.
This larger sized fermenting kit is just the right size for a whole cabbage worth of sauerkraut or kimchi. Instructions for preparing sauerkraut are included.
If you don’t want your sauerkraut to discolour (this only affects how it looks, not how it tastes) keep it in a dark place. All ferments should be kept out of direct sunlight. Sauerkraut should be fermented in a cool environment (not cold, just cool. Around 18ºC is ideal).
Ferments I’ve made using this fermenting kit include sauerkraut, kimchi, lemons, and gherkins. Fermenting is a great way to preserve fresh produce from your veggie garden, and a delicious way to introduce healthy bacteria to your gut flora.
I’ve also made a video instructable on sauerkraut, which you might find helpful:
