Sauerkraut in water kefir – 3 day ferment!!!

I made 3 600ml jars in this batch.

I absolutely love sauerkraut! It’s so cheap and easy to make yourself at home. Be sure to use quality organic produce and quality filtered water.

I do all my fermenting with Kultured Wellness starter cultures. Ferments take anywhere from 6hrs to 72hrs, so there is no waiting for weeks to try your scrumptious ferments. I steer clear of wild ferments while we are rebuilding and repopulating our microbiome opting for these cultured ferments because I know exactly what I’m going to get. Beautiful, gut loving probiotic strains to help us move forward in our healing. They really make a difference.

The following strains are in the coconut water kefir starter that I use to ferment my sauerkraut, carrots with ginger and turmeric, lots of other vegetables, juices and fruit:

  • Saccharomyces boulardii
  • Lactobacillus gasseri
  • Lactobacillus planetarium
  • Lactobacillus Rhamnosus
  • Bifidobacterium infantis
  • Lactobacillus Salivarius
  • Bifidobacterium Bifidum
  • Bifidobacterium Longum
  • Bifidobacterium Lactis


Sometimes our guts can suffer more damage from wild ferments while in an unhealthy state. So start off slowly and enjoy the wonderful creations to nourish you from the inside out.

  1. Divide vegetables and seeds evenly in to your jars and push down firmly with every handful that u add.
