Storing Lacto-Ferments


Where do I store it? How long can I store it for? When does it go bad? All of these are great and very common questions. Once your fermentation is complete (in other words, you’re happy with the results and don’t want it to get more sour or soft), screw on a secure lid and place it in the fridge.

If properly stored, your ferment can last for months in the fridge, maybe even longer. You’ll know when it’s not safe to eat… mold and an off-putting smell are the obvious signs. Get the scoop on how to properly store your ferment from fermentation expert, Sandor Katz, and how to lengthen the shelf life in the video below.
