You can call it Anak Krakaktau this is Indonesian for child of Krakatoa or Krakatau.

I changed the spelling of Krockatoa to Krokatoa and left out the c..
The stencil messed up so I just hand painted it.

I don't know why I didn't think of this before.
Homemade Air lock.
The bottle lid has tiny holes in it.

Good thinking! In the beer making world we use something similar referred to as a "blow off tube" when fermentation is too violent for a small airlock.

I got the idea when sdamber/Sue posted the link to the fermenting kits.
For some reason I wasn't putting 2 and 2 together and then it dawned on me.

It took more time to find the tubing I walked by 5 times that it did to make the silly thing.
And yes it is working wonderfully and putting out a bubble about every 15 minutes.
It should start speeding up soon.
I wont get into the details but I am only about two steps away from manufacturing and collecting methane gas.
Lets just hope the carrots aren't making methane or H2s gas.

USGS is now reporting that Krokatoa is burping at a steady rate of every 30 seconds or less.
This has more than doubled since yesterday.

Nice peppers!
Holding off on ordering my kit, going to try that method first. Going to get some tubing.

Be forewarned I used a drill press at slow speed to drill the holes.
A hand drill may not get the same results.
To drill the holes I had the lids on the bottles and jars so I could hold them.

Not the same jars the food was in.

Thanks for the grand idea Mr. Inventor Worth, it's a wonderful contraption! Must try something similar myself now. Do get another jar and make more peppers! more more peppers!

Although I really love marinated hot peppers..... sweet and hot.... oops, said marinated
