Here is a pic of some homemade kraut that a friend of mine gave me. They are big in the cabbage business. They make this is 750lb drums. He had 10tonnes in his basement at one point several years ago. He said the entire house smelled of it lol
This I made with red pepper flakes, onions and carrots. This is 3 weeks old I believe he said. He told me it is ready but in another couple weeks will be a bit more sour tasting.
