      Hi All,
      Well, after several weeks of waiting for my kimchi, we took the lid off and discovered many colors of different growth all over the kimchi. I am very bummed. What went wrong? I used an Onggi my husband purchased when he was on a short stay in South Korea.
      Thank You for any help,

      The top of the kimchi must be oxidized. Just remove the brown part or any white fungus. You still can eat it as long as the kimchi underneath is red.
      Press down on the top of the kimchi with a large wooden spoon whenever you take some so that the kimchi is submerged in the brine.
