I missed this part in the directions and stuck my chopped up cabbage in a stainless steel pot while salting for about half hour to let the water come out. then i transferred it to a glass jar. does the pot lessen its fermentation or bacteria??

I found this link that might be helpful, but I don't think you need to worry because stainless steel is non-reactive.

It can discolor the steel, but I don't think it's a problem since it was a short period of time before the fermentation began.
