I find the amounts hard to work with... there are large and smaller heads of cabbage and how much is a "bunch"? Is it possible give estimates in metric figures (gramms)?

Hello Gaby. A cabbage head is roughly weighted 900-1000g, a bunch of kale might be about 6-8 leaves with stems usually and roughly weigh 400-500g, and a bunch of parsley might be 12 stems at about 100g. Moreover, the weights don't really matter when you're fermenting so you shouldn't stress and just work with what you can find in the store. Happy fermenting! :) ~ Karelle

Do you have any suggestions on why my crock keeps sucking in the water from the moat? I've lost my first batch to mold from this and am hesitant to use it again. Thank you.

Do we put in the fridge as warm climate
Hopefully wasn’t a silly question

Hi Susie, during the fermentation process, you need to put the mixture at a room temperature in a dark corner of your kitchen. Hope this helps :) Happy fermenting! ~ Iris

How do I keep my kraut from being mushy? I like mine with a little crunch.

Hi Missy, kraut is quite the art and takes a little bit of trial and error to get it exactly the way you like it. Some tips for making it crunchier include cutting the cabbage more coarsely and using less salt. Hope this helps :) ~ Iris

Hi Elke! If you visit a local Asian market, there is a chance that you may be able to find some other varieties to experiment with. Or you may also try to find the sea vegetable powder on health food shops online. Hope this helps! ~ Jasmin
