Pack cabbage mixture into jar and press down lightly until the brine rises and covers the vegetables completely.

5. Apply Fermentation Device

Apply Kraut Source, or other jar-top fermentation device, according to its instructions to jar. Make sure all kimchi stays down under the brine and the airlock has water for the entire fermentation time.

6. Ferment Seven Days and Enjoy!
