Make a bubble knot on the bottom end. I made a loop here also just in case the top loop fails.

Tie some twin in the middle so the meat dont slide to the bottom which could result causing an air pocket at the top.

Now I use bread bags to help keep the humidity in and aid in fermentation
18-20 hours.

Keep 'em coming Rick! I'm loving it! First time I've seen Long black pepper, What region is it from? Be careful with the temps. fermenting with that B-LC-007 culture as it has Peddiococcus Acidilactici bacteria and it is very fast!

In for the ride...
 
Google answered my question....from India...never heard of the stuff. Interesting....from wiki:
Only after the discovery of the American continents and of chili pepper, called by the Spanish pimiento, employing their word for long pepper, did the popularity of long pepper fade away.[2] Chili peppers, some of which, when dried, are similar in shape and taste to long pepper, were easier to grow in a variety of locations more convenient to Europe. Today, long pepper is a rarity in general commerce.

Would you mind taking a moment to 'splain your drying cabinet or is there a thread about it I can read perhaps?
I'm still shopping for a proper box to start my adventure.
