Homemade kimchi - smells like yeast fermented

BamiaWruz | Jun 29, 2011 06:34 PM

Ok so I made some homemade kimchi for the first time, using this recipe....

It said to let it sit on the counter for 6 days (in a cool place) which I did for 5 days then placed in the fridge.

It has this yeasty fermented smell AND TASTE, I don't know if it's the way it's supposed to be (none of the kimchi at restaurants/commercial or even homemade by korean families tastes this way)

Did I do something wrong, should I throw it away?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
