my brine got a bit gloopy after a few weeks - is that normal? Cabbage still crunchy though and tasting good

How do you clean the equipment you use to make sauerkraut? I'm afraid of botulism lol. Does it have to be sanitized more than normal?

WTF is up with gringos? As a Canadian I am totally baffled by the blended metric & US Imperial measures “10g salt to 1POUND of cabbage!” Whaaaa? Go metric Murica. You’re burnt
Christen LaChar (17 hours ago)
Imperial is easier to eyeball the amounts that is how it's most useful and why it has been utilized.

In Ukraine we ferment it with a bit of cranberries and under pressure to keep the crunchy texture.
FolivoraMaximus (10 days ago)
Cook it, with onions and about a glass or two of sparkling wine and let it cook for a bit (when your not vegetarian put some Kassler Meat (sorry idk what's an American alternative to it) in it), add salt and pepper and eat it with fried Schupfnudeln, they are like Italien gnocchis but in a longish form. That's how you eat it German style!

Hey Brad, I love all your videos, especially the fermenting ones. I am from the south-west of germany where sauerkraut is part of many regional dishes and we use a special kind of cabbage. I don't know its english name but google told me its called a pointed cabbage and very close to my home town there is a famous type which is called filderkraut (i am not sure if it is like with champagne that it has to be grown here or if its a cabbage variety). This makes in my opinion the best sauerkraut because it doesen't lose that much water content and stays crispy even with very thin cabbage slices which we usually do) and not big junks, but thats just prefence like alway with cooking.
Vincent M. (17 days ago)
I don't think Brad says water incorrectly. What's that? Yeah, I'm from Jersey. So?
Robert Pruitt (17 days ago)
My mother used to make sauerkraut all the time, and kept it in this cabinet, what time she forgot to burp one of the jars and it literally exploded. That was fun to clean up.

Strange. What you call green cabbage, I call white cabbage and what I call green cabbage, you call kale.

When I make sauerkraut I like to mix some red cabbage into it, about four parts green to one part red. It makes it a little sweeter but its still real good. I also let it sit for at least a month before I crack into it.

Love the videos. 10g NaCl / 453.9g of cabbage is a bit much from my experience though. I tried that ratio and it was inedible. I get better results with 5-6g. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

funny thing is germans rarely eat Sauerkraut in a hotdog we usually eat it cooked with bacon as a side dish or part of a dish . For example sauerkrat with Roasted Potato crums is my fav but its a kinda lokal thing but mostly its eaten as a side dish to hotBlack pudding and liver sausage (liver sausage doesnt contain any liver)
