NO! Blasphemy! haha. The kimchi was still good. THis happens a lot. You just have to sometimes make sure to open your kimchi in the sink if its the first time opening it.

Here are some possibles answers:

1.) you over stuffed it when you made it

2.) in the fermentation processa lot of gasses are formed that build up pressure. its like if you shake a pop can and open it.

3.) either you didn’t pull out enough water from the cabbage while salting or there was just naturally more water retained in the cabbage so while it was fermenting in the bottle all the liquid came out of the cabbage.

I’m kinda bummed that you threw away one month old kimchi. Ahhh the possibilities… older kimchi is the best.
