I attempted sauerkraut for the first time according to the recipe for "Quick Kraut" in Full Moon Feast. Basically I put the ingredients in a quart jar and put a smaller jar with water on top which me and my ds have been pushing on at least once a day for a little over a week.
There are 1/8-1/4 inch spots of white fuzzy stuff growing on the surface of the liquid. Does that mean I should throw out the whole thing?

A-ha found it.
The mold you have now can just be skimmed off and the kraut is fine, but in the future lids might be easier.
