"Kat, Is that a flat inner rim or a mote in which water can be added? I was hoping it was the mote type. If so you may be able to use another lid that would fit in the mote and then fill with water. If it is a flat or a rim that is slanting down it may be beast to use the plastic bag method. Either way, weight the krout down so it will be under the brine. When using glass jars, I use a bag filled with glass marbles, pictures in the link below.
I took some pics from the inside this morning....Tom tell me what you think or Dave O or anyone. This is new territory for me! Tell me what both of these things are and how to use them. TEACH me! Need Input!!!! lol I don't know the terminology yet.
