Anyone know what fermentation weights he's got there? the only ones I can find are for the larger wide mouth mason jars.

I'm making mine in a crock. Since I can't see the veggies, is there a way to tell it's gone far enough or should I taste it after a few days and go by flavor/texture? I make sauerkraut all the time but I haven't tried lactofermentation of other vegetables. Thanks!

I think he's pronouncing it "would'er" - maybe a subconscious tie over from a previous relationship... We've all wondered " Would 'er parents like me?"

zero science, zero classical lacto fermentation. ur supposed to just add salt to the veggies, a little krauthammer action, plenty of time... not so much here.

When I first saw this I thought Brad was making giardia. His actual recipe is much tastier (and less dangerous)!

Is this recipe written down somewhere? I can't find it and Brad isn't very specific about the amounts of ingredients he uses.

bc there aren’t specifics, really? 3.5 percent salt for the brine by weight, the spices are all given in amounts, however much of the veggies you like

Am I the only one who gets annoyed with the annotations highlighting this mans verbal quirks he seems like a really nice dude why point out these things I don't think its bad that he has them but it kind of annoys me that they do it.

Aww, it sounds like Brad has trypophobia-- a fear of holes (yes, it's real and most people actually have it but are unaware).

What I like about giardiniera is that its name is so similar to that of the parasite you'll get if you do this incorrectly.

"8:44 well baybe, always be safe, wear gloves if you stick you hand in dark hole, you dont want anything to bite ya ;) also don't start with a fist, the whole pot will break.
Colloquial Captain
It's a good thing we have this editing, because if we didn't I'd well.. die. Ok that may be a bit extreme but it's still a fantastic video!

Does brad know how to chop anything? I’ve seen him do this in so many episodes and it’s hilarious.
Kriste Isopahkala
10:44 From his reaction I thought there were maggots or something in his bread. I really enjoyed how gutted he was for the gutted bread, pun intended.
