Pickles? No vinegar! Just lactic fermentation . . .

Just curious started by first batch today (about 5lbs) and was wondering who else may be doing it.

I do. SWMBO bought me a big ole fermentation cask a few years ago.

My first batch were a huge success, tasted amazing! After that I had about 3 flops. For some reason the cukes went bad. Most recent batch went alright, but not as good as the first.

Kind of made my fermentation confidence take a hit...

My SWMBO and I just bought an expensive 5L crock with weights and a groove around the top you fill with water so you don't have to skim the junk off of the top every day. We've tried two batches so far from store bought cukes neither one fermented . I think that the cukes had too much wax on them or something, didn't work at all. Now we're waiting for our home grown cukes to try again. We're hoping that the farmers market might have some before our plants strat producing but I'm afraid it'll be a while.
