History of the Perfect Pickler

Bill Hettig created the Perfect Pickler back in 1992 while learning about fermentation for his cooking school. While simultaneously making a crock of kraut, sourdough bread, and homebrew in his kitchen, he saw how the different devices encouraged or protected the fermentables. It wasn't long before he created the Perfect Pickler® amongst the parts and parcels of fermentation. This jar top fermentor came alive slowly over the next two decades when Bill went on lecture tours and put on demos around Central Florida and the East Coast. Since then he has created more than 99 recipes for almost any type of veggie fermentation.
