I have 5 – 6 lbs of sauerkraut in a crock with a water vacuum seal. I read that the first 24 – 48 hours are crucial to the success of the kraut. I also read that the kraut should develop its own liquid during this time, and that one can pour boiled water on top if it doesn't. However, I also read that it shouldn't be disturbed for a fairly long period of time. I am a bit confused. Should I check on the progress after a few days, or not?
- My sauerkraut brine seems slightly slithe but the batch otherwise seems normal–is it ok
- Homemade sauerkraut liquid level below cabbage. Should I add brine
- How to prevent mold from growing on the surface of the sauerkraut brine
