Uses: Family-sized for family favorites! Great for long-storage, popular favorites including sauerkraut, kimchi, and pickling cukes. This is the largest Pickl-It that we offer. Like the 4-Liter, this system is perfect for creating large-quantities of one-batch, which should be decanted to smaller Pickl-It for refrigerator storage, using either the Plug’R or mini-airlocks in place of the large airlock.
Ideal for fermenting 4 to 5 1/2-pounds of vegetables, this size is also popular for lacto-fermented beverages including beet kvass, ginger beer, or a wide-variety of water-kefir drinks.
This is also a good size for brining brisket – up to 7-pounds – resulting in a tender, juicy, corned beef without using saltpeter.
Each 5-liter Pickl-It glass container (Capacity: approximately 4 to 5 1/2-pounds or 5-quarts liquid) includes:
- Tight-fitting, air-tight glass lid
- High-capacity easy-to-clean barrel-style airlock (mini-airlock may be purchased separately)
- FDA food-grade grommet
- Natural food-grade rubber white lid seal
- Plug’R – Converts Pickl-It into storage container when airlock is removed
Note: The Dunk'R is not included with Pickl-It jars and is not necessary for all ferments. If you are fermenting solid vegetables (not liquid ferments) you may wish to add one or more Dunk'Rs to your order.
