Fermentation Starter Kit for Wide Mouth Mason Jars


Kit includes everything you need to start fermenting in a wide mouth Mason jar:

One silicone valve lid with stainless steel band and one fermentation weight.


This oh-so-easy to use fermentation kit comes with one silicone fermentation airlock valve lid, one stainless steel band, and one glass weight for wide mouth Mason jars – everything you need to get fermenting! Just add any wide mouth jar.

Better fermentation instructions are on our (long) list of plans, but for now they are widely available in books and on blogs, websites, and the Wild Fermentation Facebook group.

Here’s the basics: Keep everything clean. Either salt your vegetables and pound them to draw out liquid, or pack them into the jar and pour a saltwater brine over them. Place the glass weight on top to keep as much vegetable matter as possible under the brine. Try to skim out any floaters. Put the silicone lid on, logo side up, and secure with a metal band. Wait a while, taste, repeat until desired level of flavor is achieved. It’s like magic!

Perfic for a newbie test batch

I wasn't sure I'd even like fermented pickles. This affordable starter kit was exaclty the right thing to let me try a test batch to see if fermentation was the right thing for us. The weight is a perfect fit. The silicone lid is a simple but functional solution. Worked flawlessly.

Exactly what I hoped for!

I've already tried a fermentation project with this starter kit and it worked wonderfully with a wide-mouth mason jar. I may just need a few more!

Wrong address; did not receive

I used the wrong shipping address through PayPal and had it sent to a previous address I lived at 3.5 years ago. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to reach the new resident. Will reorder soon but unfortunately at a higher price because there was a sale at that time.

Exactly what I wanted

My order was delivered quickly and was well packaged. My invoice had a little "thank you" written on it which was nice. The glass weight is perfectly weighted. Just enough weight to keep my green-beans underwater but doesn't mash them down. Overall I'm quite pleased with my purchase.
