I was intrigued by  the whey-method although I kept thinking, "This really can't work.  It sounds like a bad idea."  I had my undergrad class check out whey-ferment vs no-whey, using the German crocks. Wow. I should have listened to my original thinking.  Bad idea! Don't use whey! Not only is it low-count, but the flavor is awful and the texture even worse!  Love your Pickl-It! Great tool for teaching!
