Yes, that's a 4L pickle jar sitting beside our new 20L fermenting crock pot! The instructions say to not fill it more than 80% so, (going by our previous experience of 1 cabbage making L) my next trip to the grocery store will include about 15 cabbage heads! The greater plan is that we will always have a months supply of sauerkraut on hand, which will mean we are finally going to have enough underway to let it sit for a full four weeks. Two weeks is the longest my sauerkraut has "aged" before moving it to the fridge, so it will be nice to finally experience the three week, four week, and maybe longer flavours!
We ordered the crock from Harvest Essentials. Originally we were going to order one from TSM (The Sausage Makers), but it wasn't available until June. Looking around for the same pot lead us to Harvest Essentials who had a better price (but unfortunately the same June ETA). Looking at all of their 20L crocks revealed the one we eventually ordered... on sale from $299.99 to $205.99 (after an additional $10 coupon).
I was a little leery at first from ordering @ Harvest Essentials since they do not have user account handling setup on their site. I like a site with an ordering account where I can see my history and track my orders. Instead they use a yahoo storefront to order from, which after using it does the trick. I asked questions about shipping and breakage which they answered very quickly, so I feel I received really good customer service. I was also pleasantly surprised at how well packed and protected the crock was during shipping; top marks!
