      Fermentation weights

      Thought x-large would fit a wide mouth gallon jar but too small so ordered another set and two sets seemed to work ok.

      Didn’t keep my ferments down

      Once my ferments really started releasing CO2, the weights were pushed up to the surface.

      They aren't heavy enough

      They didn't really work for me that well to keep the kimchi down in the jar. They aren't heavy enough.
