QUESTION: Glass (but not lead crystal!) is definitely the way to go with acidic concoctions like kombucha & sauerkraut 09 Jul 2008 Queensland, Australia
Re: Don't Grow Your Kombucha in a Ceramic Pot! Elizabeth O’Brien Manager of the Lead Advisory Service (NSW)
Read with interest your advice on not fermenting foods in ceramic because of lead leaching. Can you recommend an alternative material? I often make saeurkraut in glass and oven proof ceramic
ANSWER: 09 Jul 2008
I received a failure notice on the email address you gave me so I'm trying a different combination.

Yes, keep using the glass as long as it's not leaded crystal, and avoid ceramic ware unless the supplier has labelled it as non-leaded (and you believe the label).
