  • MASONTOPS COMPLETE MASON JAR FERMENTATION KIT

    This kit is perfect for beginners or as a gift. Including enough product to make four batches at the same times, plus the all natural Pickle Packer, the value of this starter kit cannot be beat. Packed thoughtfully, and sold with a free download of a step-by-step guide, this product is sure to convert anyone curious about fermenting their own foods. Kit includes: - 4 Pickle Pebbles (Wide) - 4 Pickle Pipes (Wide) - 1 Pickle Packer The Pickle Pipe is a super simple one-piece waterless airlock that allows gas to escape as necessary without letting any contaminants back flow into the jar, and it screws into place using any standard mason jar band. FDA food-grade certified, waterless, dishwasher-safe, and more compact... the Pickle Pipe is the natural evolution of the mason jar airlock. Once screwed into place, you can forget about the Pickle Pipe for days, or even weeks. There is no need to "burp" your jars manually each day, fumble with multi-piece airlocks, or monitor the "moat" of water-based airlocks. It is truly a "set and forget" solution. Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for use with fermentation and take the guess work out of your lacto ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen (which is the main cause of failure when using lacto fermenting methods). Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ are designed for use in wide mouth canning jars, and can also be used in traditional ceramic crocks. With the Pickle Pebble PLUS+, one weight is often enough to keep veggies below the brine. Dimensions: 2.75" diameter with 0.75" thickness. Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and guarantees that no other substances leach into your ferment. The Pickle Packer has been specifically designed for small-batch fermentation of sauerkraut and other veggies in both wide-mouth and regular-mouth mason jars. Measuring 10" tall, 2.5" at the wide end and 2" at the opposite end, our unique design allows both ends to be used for packing vegetables for your ferments. This allows the Pickle Packer to be used in a wide variety of fermenting jars and containers. Pickle Packers are made from all natural untreated Acacia wood and finished with a food-safe mineral oil to seal and protect. We chose to use Acacia wood not only because of its renowned strength (2x as strong as maple) and durability, but also because it is sustainable and eco-friendly. Here is an Editorial review from our very own Hannah Kinkaid. Hannah is managing editor for Heirloom Gardener and senior editor for Mother Earth News. Editorial review: The Masontops Fermentation Kit included everything I needed to easily transform my spare wide-mouth canning jars into the ultimate fermentation vehicles. I love that the pickle pipes release extra air so I don’t have to burp my jars every day. (I sometimes forget to burp my jars and then I get paranoid that they’ll explode, so this took away that stress factor.) The glass weights are just the thing for keeping my fermentation materials submerged to prevent mold from growing. I had been scavenging around my house for rocks, discs, and other small weights to use informally, and now I don’t have to even think about finding an impromptu and food-safe weight. The acacia wood vegetable tamper packed everything down perfectly and felt really nice in my hands. The wood is smooth and soft, and I felt like I put more intention and might behind my fermentation preparation because I was using a tool that I enjoyed. Overall, I was really happy with the fermentation kit and I would definitely recommend it to my friends and other fermentation hobbyists.

  • MASONTOPS PICKLE PIPES REGULAR MOUTH 4-PACK

    The Pickle Pipe is the world's first one-piece, self-sealing, silicone and waterless airlock. When fermenting your own vegetables, it is important that carbon dioxide is allowed to escape (or else the jar can explode) and that oxygen is not allowed to enter (or else your food will spoil with mold). The Pickle Pipe maintains the perfect, maintenance-free fermenting environment without the need to burp your jars every day, or monitor the water levels of a clumsy 3-piece airlock. The patent-pending Pickle Pipe will allow you to "set and forget" your ferments without the daily maintenance of every other airlock solution in existence. The low profile design allows you to store your ferments in tight spaces, and when finished, simply pop them in the dishwasher for years of use. There is no easier or more convenient solution to worry-free mason jar ferments. VERIFIED FERMENT-SAFE. ??One-Piece, Silicone, Self-Sealing, Waterless Fermentation Airlock ?Dishwasher Safe, BPA- and Phthalate-Free ?Fits any "Regular-Mouth" Mason Jar (Ball, Kerr, Bernardin, etc.) ?Screws on with any "Regular-Mouth" Mason Jar Band (not included)
