              How about converting the grams of salt to tbsp.

                Angel wings 5g: heaped teaspoon 4g: level teaspoon. Honestly I mix metric with teaspoon measures all the time and have never had an issue, even when doing fiddly French cooking and baking.

              why do you do your units of measuring in half imperial and half metric?

                      We need a video of "behind the scenes" with Brad! The ranting that he does that you cut out, or his opinions he shares etc!

                        I am Belgian and have made sauerkraut before, traditional Dutch or German recipes (with wine, or juniper berries). I tried the Brad recipe two months ago, and the first month the smell of garlic was really dominant, so I was a bit weary of the end result. Today after a long long day I choose not to cook, but bought prepared meatballs in a sweet beer sauce with estragon at the local caterer. Very tasty, but I need veggies with a dish. So I opened my 2 liter weck pot and tried the sauerkraut.
                        Divine. Simply divine. And it went so well with the estragon, that I am thinking of experimenting with it. This is such a winner! Thank you! I love all this stuff. Kombucha, water kefir, growing shrooms and experimenting with yeasts and funghi... current craze of the month is making cheese. Gouda, feta, mozzarella and more to come :D

                                                When my family makes sauerkraut, ferment for about 30-45 days, then we can it and don't eat until it's two years old.

                                                              Usually here people cut cabbage to make it like long noodles, add chopped carrot or some sour berries for flavour

I'm just saying...Thanks Brad...If you'd just do one topless video (and keep the link to it in the links), then we would need to be distracted no longer! At least not by the thought that you need to take the top off. I suppose Bon Appétit would not approve of topless Brad.
