• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Very interesting thread ... now I have yet another project.

I've made Sauerkraut before and am familiar with the concepts involved so this should be fun.

Thanks to all the contributors on this thread! :)
It may look similar to sauerkraut, but the intrinsic elements of sauerkraut are lactobacillus, aerobic, acidity and salinity.

There is neither oxygen, salt, nor acid in perique.

After "lactobacillus" it should say "anaerobic", I believe. To be specific, facultative.

This idea of keeping the leaf pressed below the water line to create the anaerobic environment is what I was referring to.
