Frequently Asked Questions
The sign of “frothy foam” sitting on top your beet juice kvass should not be taken as a sign-of-doom, but instead, a sign-of-success!
Highly-active beet juice kvass that has a healthy level of carbonation is going to froth and foam, which ends up floating on the kvass surface. Carbonation means that your lactic-acid bacteria are healthy!
When foam, also known as “scum” appears, simply open your Pickl-It and carefully scrape it off. Try to clear off as much as possible, but if you don’t get it all? Don’t worry if you don’t capture every single frothy bubble.

I truly appreciate your swift reply to all my questions, and your glorious products!! I have a bad mold allergy, which is why I purchased the Pickl-It. Thank you, again!
