    Are you adding any tannins to your pickles? Try grape, oak, or bay leaves. In a pinch, a tea
    bag will work, too. It will help maintain the crunchiness.I've used a tea bag, just generic
    black tea from ...

    Do you mean while it's fermenting? That seems counter-intuitive for lacto. Can you please
    elaborate?I keep mine at room temp, around 70 degrees, for about a week. Once fermentation is
    to the point whe...

    I ferment pickles 4 lbs at a time in a large glass fermentation crock. Here's a shot of them
    right after preperation: you using a brine filled bag to keep the cukes under the fermenting
    brine? That's...

    When I was running 10psi at 40 degrees, 5 feet seemed to be the bare minimum that would give me
    an acceptable pour.

  • Posted in thread: Decant liquid or throw it all in? on 08-28-2015 at 08:02 PM
    If I'm going for a full size 2L starter, absolutely decant every time. If I am just doing a
    small 1L starter to get the yeast active I don't bother decanting.

    Did not add pectin or anything else.I can't imagine the amount of fruit you added would really
    make pectin a major problem. If you are adding a lot of fruit, particularly if you heat it,
    pectin can be...

    Mad Zymurgists
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
