These airlock fermentor is a great way to culture your veggies. You don't need airlocks to ferment - but it is my favorite way to ferment veggies because they taste better.

The lid is 110mm in diameter and fits most gallon jars.

Fermenting with an airlocks  helps with several things.

  • Better tasting veggies.
  • Less chance of the Kahm yeast that can develop and make your veggies taste bad.
  • Release pressure/ gas naturally and allows veggies to ferment and stay crisper.

  2. Prepare your vegetables and place in your canning jars, fill with the appropriate amount of water and culture.
  3. Remove the clear plastic cap from the top of the airlock. Fill the airlock with water about halfway up the plastic tube.
