Ready for a three day weekend! Its 95 so I'm getting a little sun on the beer belly while the kids are playing with water. Anyway, here is the kimchi that had been siting on the kitchen counter since I made it. Wow! Does it go great with a hot day and a cold beer. It is starting to bubble a bit but still tastes pretty fresh.

Did you make it spicy?
It's spicy. Not extreme but just about right. Next time I'm adding the extra 1/2 cup of pepper flakes. I have a pound or two reserved for you and Bob.

here's some that i made probably 4 months ago. it's aging quite nicely. i don't eat kimchee a ton, but i love having some around. i based my recipe off the one in Wild Fermentation, which is a great book if you haven't checked it out. i also love doing naturally fermented sauerkraut and my wife and I made some fermented salsa a few times, it's good, but kinda weird with the fizzyness from the co2 that gets released.

That looks great! I just love cabbage. Add some spice and sour and I'm in. Next project is sauerkraut.

I just took the primary bucket out of the fridge. It's too cold to ferment. I was planning to put it in the ferm chamber at about 55. That should be close to in-ground temperature?

when i've done sauerkraut, i just let it sit at room temp and it seems to sour up fine. it takes a few weeks for it to get good n' sour though. i think the koreans like to set their fermentation fridges around 55 though, so i'm sure it would be fine, just might take a little longer.

Out of curiosity, do you guys/girls prefer a certain type of beer or food with your kimchii?

San Miguel would probably pair well with kimchii.

Thanks for the advice. I think I will leave the bucket on the garage floor for a while. It stays 70 and below. I'll watch that for a few days and see what develops. I'm having a hard time keeping my mits out of it...reminds mean of my first batch of beer....
