- Is it safe to ferment with metal?
Kraut Source is made only with food-grade stainless steel. Wine makers and commercial live-cultured kraut makers also use stainless steel vats for fermentation.
- What kind of mason jar can I use with Kraut Source?
Kraut Source works with wide-mouth (86 mm/3.46 in) mason jars of any size. It doesn’t work with a regular-mouth jar. It can be used with American-made Ball or Kerr jar, both available at your local hardware store, major stores like Beth, Bath and Beyond and Target, or online retailers. You can also use the Italian-made Quattro Stagioni jar by Bormioli Roco. If using the latter, you’ll need to obtain a ring elsewhere to secure the system.
