The thing with Kimchi is you have some really good batches, you have some mediocre batches and sometimes you have bad batches. Even if you use the same exact ingredeints, same amounts, mixed it the same identical way it’ll always be different.

You just have to go with it.

Sometimes Kimchi will taste horrible for 2-3 weeks and then all of a sudden it’ll taste good. Somtimes it’ll taste good in the first week and then taste bad the second week. It’s just one of those things that comes with the territory of fermentation.

Whenever my grandmother or mother made bad batches of kimchi they would just set it aside, sorta ‘forget it’ and then when the time came make stew, or pancakes or bokkeum or
