Weights to keep ferments submerged under brine water! These half moon shaped stones are made of high fired stoneware. They are unglazed, but because they have been fired to a high temperature, they will not absorb water.
When together, the stones form a 6.5 inch diameter circle. These weights are sized to fit our large (6 quart) fermentation jars but will work in any appropriately sized container. The set of weights weighs 2 pounds (one pound per side).
**This product is a separate set of weights, without a fermentation jar. Each of our fermentation jars includes a set of weights with purchase. These are for customers who want an additional set, or who want a set of weights withoutpurchasing a fermentation jar.
