Fermented Vegetable Master: Gallon
- Product Review (submitted on February 20, 2013):
This fermenter produced the best saurkraut I've ever made. Up until now, I had made a couple of batches in a ceramic crock but always had issues with mould. The research I did said mould was common but it grossed me out.
With this system there were no mould issues. None. The cabbage fermented beautifully, the brine stayed clear, and the saurkraut tastes fantastic.
My only complaint is that the mouth of the jar is a bit narrow. I don't have large hands but, even though I mixed the cabbage and salt together in a big bowl before loading it into the jar, I found it a bit awkward to pack in. But this is a minor issue and I'm really pleased I made this purchase.
