Comment on Is Maldon Salt Worth the Price? by Ruth http://wellpreserved.ca/maldon-salt-worth-price/#comment-31568 Sat, 26 Jul 2014 03:44:36 +0000 http://wellpreserved.ca/?p=18106#comment-31568 More than worth the money. A few flakes gives you that salty crunchy taste we all grave. The health benefits are by far the best bang for your buck. A few flakes satisfies our salt craving. White Sea salt lacks the same mineral content as white table salt. Himalayan pink salt also gives you that salty crunch with a few flakes!

Comment on What’s the Salt Ratio for making Sauerkraut? by returnoninspiration http://wellpreserved.ca/whats-the-salt-ratio-for-making-sauerkraut/#comment-31565 Fri, 25 Jul 2014 23:54:32 +0000 http://wellpreserved.ca/?p=14971#comment-31565 Hi Nedlear,

The ratio for most is 3-5%. So 1:33 or 1:50 – but most don’t measure to that type of precision! :) Variables of heat, water content and more will make the absolute precision of measuring salt fairly insignificant as there are many other variables that will change the flavor and results.

Now, that’s not to say I think measuring is wrong or silly or dumb; just that it won’t create the level of precision that many are looking for…

Thanks for the article and congrats on it being one of the google top pages when searching ‘salt ratio sauerkraut’
Perhaps you could put the ratio into your article. Perhaps at the start. Something alone the lines ” By weigh, the salt to cabbage ratio is 1:50″

Thanks John for finding the ratio.

Or perhaps you were taking John for a ride..:)

Comment on The Fundamentals of Fermenting Alcohol by Rodney R http://wellpreserved.ca/fundamentals-of-fermenting-alcohol/#comment-31527 Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:18:40 +0000 http://wellpreserved.ca/?p=18108#comment-31527 Great Posting! You’ve hit all the basics that would allow anyone to make a drinkable alcoholic beverage. I only have one additional comment. When bottling, sometimes a little sugar is added to the brew to give the yeast something more to eat while it is in the bottle. As you pointed out, too much sugar will cause a big mess but for bottle conditioned beer, it is critical to good carbonation.

Thanks for all the great info!!!!

Comment on How to Make Raisins (Dehydrate Grapes) by ilkafanni http://wellpreserved.ca/how-to-make-raisins-dehydrate-grapes/#comment-31495 Tue, 22 Jul 2014 19:23:42 +0000 http://wellpreserved.ca/?p=4698#comment-31495 A quick way to cut a bunch of grapes in half at once: put a bunch of grapes on a Flat plate. Put another plate on top securing all the grapes in place, take a long sharp or serrated knife and cut in between the plates horizontally, like you would slice a cake for filling. Tada!
