  Lesson 4: Guidelines To Tell If It's Fermenting

Simple guidelines to tell if it's fermenting

  1. The pickles will become dull in color.
  2. The brine will become cloudy.
  3. Small air pockets will form.
  4. When you open a lid (if it was closed tight in the first place) gas will escape making a hiss sound.
  5. It will take on a tangy flavor.

If you're not sure your pickles are fermenting right or if something seems off, refer to the troubleshooting guide in the bonus area or leave a comment below.
