The Dunk’R should be covered by 1-inch of brine. The brine surface should not extend above the shoulder when fermenting foods that expand during fermentation. Kraut, carrots and beets may expand as much as 1-inch, raising the brine surface and Dunk’R.
To decrease expansion, firmly-pack shredded foods, reducing oxygen pockets in and around the food. Detailed information is here.

“On a hot day in Virginia, I know nothing more comforting than a fine spiced pickle, brought up trout-like from the sparkling depths of the aromatic jar below the stairs of Aunt Sally’s cellar.”
I love the new lid cover covers! I thought they would be some sort of garish primary colors, rather than these harmonious variations on milk, cream, mint, and grass! Your system is brilliant!
