Lol, did it get really sour on you?  I start tasting mine about day three, and when it tastes good, I stick in in the fridge.  I'm not sure what to do about too sour kraut.

I have been eating the kraut I made before I cut my thumb and it tastes so good. Halfway through the jar and one jar left so I had better get on and make a lot more.

A couple of years ago I made about ten jars at once and that was fine too and I was sorry when I used it all.  But I got sidetracked and never made any more until now.

Now that my thumb has healed I will make it a priority to make another batch.

This is the best batch of sauerkraut I have made.  I used a ziplock baggie of water to hold the cabbage beneath the liquid. Last night, I sterilized the jars and lids and tools, and carefully packed the sauerkraut.  There was enough juice to cover the kraut.  They are just being refrigerated, and I will gift 3.

I would like to try a cabbage, apple, carrot and pineapple mix, or at least a cabbage, apple and carrot one.  Any one have any idea of the ratios?  Two cabbages, one apple and 2 large peeled carrots plus 2 Tablespoons of sea salt?  Sauerkraut & fermenting veggies - Page 3 Sauerk10

Did you grow the cabbages, sanderson?  How many?  I tried some 2 years ago but they got dug up by something. I love sauerkraut!

No, my cabbage endeavors failed twice. Embarassed So, it's store bought for me. I get the largest and peel off a couple layers, just in case of human mishandling.

Here is the gallon container with the kraut before I "canned" it.  This gives me an idea of how much 2 cabbages produce. Sauerkraut & fermenting veggies - Page 3 Tomato11

I've never tried kraut from the refrigerated section of the store.

Here is an old [1928] article regarding the commercial sauerkraut industry.    http://archive.org/stream/commercialproduc35lefe/commercialproduc35lefe_djvu.txt

Brian, you asked about the failed batch of sauerkraut on another thread.

sanderson wrote:Turned out good this time.  I've made it 4 times and only one time was it inedible.  I had tried using the cabbage I grew and never grew again.  Embarassed  https://squarefoot.forumotion.com/t20146-sauerkraut-fermenting-veggies
Why didn’t the cabbage you grew Work ?

I tried growing winter cabbage for 2 winters. They never formed tight heads of cabbage. I used the loosey goosey leaves to make sauerkraut and it went bad. Were the leaves too contaminated from the gardeners blowing dog hair and crud over the fence? Don't know. At least they stopped blowing crud over the fence so life in that area has greatly improved.

With a big, tight head, the outer leaves can be carefully removed, leaving a relatively clean head to slice. In other words, only normal microbes.

Mostly been lurking time-to-time! I'll try to visit here more often, though. Lost the help of MDW in our garden (knee problems). The new avatar is a pic of one of 4 bee hives our eldest son made for us. He also tends the bees. I'm still using honey he harvested from it last year. drooling
I'm acclimatizing (hardening-off) tomatoes, peppers, okra, basil, and marigolds. Meanwhile, I'm waiting for broccoli, cabbage, nasturtium, and leeks to sprout.

I started 2 pints of sauerkraut 21 days ago using the small-batch method by Debbie's Back Porch.  Today I had my first serving.  Dang, but it's good.  hungry  Tomorrow I hope to start another batch because I know this will not last long.
