January 11, 2017 Fermenting, News, Product, Tips & Techniques, What's New

We Just Added the reCAP Fermenter

The reCAP Fermenter

We added another useful tool to our fermenting products. Introducing the reCAP® Fermenter: an easy to use waterless airlock set for making ferments. It fits the pour spout of the pour caps which means it can work with both regular mouth and wide mouth Mason jars!

reCAP® Fermentation is different than some other fermenting systems because it is a low-profile, waterless airlock with a one-way valve to let gases escape and absolutely not let air in. This eliminates the need to monitor the jars every day, but makes it easy to peek in and taste when desired.

What makes the reCAP Fermenter so special:

  • EASY – Low profile, Waterless Airlock (no maintenance) & interchangeable between regular and wide mouth Mason jars. Quick Clean Up & Dishwasher safe.
  • SAFE – Rust-free, BPA-free, Food Safe Plastic. True One-way Valve (allow gases to escape and will not let air in)
  • DURABLE – An Economical, Multipurpose Solution that will last for many years.
  • NO Maintenance or monitoring required.
recap fermenter

Mason jars are a popular vessel for fermentation. reCAP Mason Jars converts the pour cap into a fermenting tool with the reCAP Fermenter.  The waterless airlock and stopper fits perfectly into reCAP’s pour cap. Once the ferment is complete, simply remove the stopper, press down the pour lid and it’s ready for storage!  The reCAP Fermenter can then be used in another batch.  No need to scramble for lids and rings.

The reCAP® Fermentation comes as a 3-pack. It is dishwasher safe and made of BPA-free, food safe plastic. Order yours here.ferment 3-pack

Recipes and Resources

We highly recommend the book Ferment Your Vegetables by Amanda Feifer. It’s a great guide to making your own pickles, kimchi, kraut and so much more. Amanda’s blog Phickle is also a wealth of resources and recipes. Batch, by the folks at Well Preserved covers a variety of preserving methods including fermenting.

A few of our favorite ferment recipes:

Simple Sauerkraut

Kale Kimchi

Mirepoix Sauerkraut Recipe

If you are totally new to fermenting, don’t be scared. Watch this video to see how easy it really is!

    Favorite ferment is probably sauerkraut, either traditional (cabbage only) or what I’ve seen called “Garden Kraut” which typically has cabbage, kale, carrots, etc.
