Crocks for small batch sauerkraut

Cam14 | Apr 22, 2013 09:23 AM

Does anyone have an opinion on the best type of crock for making small batches of sauerkraut? I just purchased a 2 gallon inexpensive crock and started my first batch of homemade kraut, (from a recipe on the WS site). My inexpensive crock has no lid, you just use a plate with a weight over the kraut to keep it submerged in the juice and a dish towel over the crock.

I see there are expensive crocks with water seals at the top.

Any opinions on a preference of one method over the other?
