The kolsch yeast went off like crazy, the alt is slower but chugging along. I ended up not heating it or adding hops.

For sauerkraut, I cut up a cabbage, jam as much as possible into a quart mason jar add some salt then beat the hell out of it with a wood spoon. Weigh down the cabbage so it is fully submerged in it's own water. Let it sit for 3-5 days on the counter. The natural bacteria will take care of fermentation. Refrigerate when done.

So, how much kraut juice did you pitch and how long had it been sitting/fermenting before you pitched it? Did you make a kraut juice starter?

Sorry, I used about 50ml of fresh kraut juice in a pint mason jar which I grew for a few days, I pitched the whole starter without decanting.

Thanks for the clarification.
I am going to try this for sure. I have talked a buddy into trying it too.

That 50ml went into a typical 1.040 starter.
