Due to the "Stay-at-Home" order by the State of Illiniois, we are currently operating with extended order processing times. We will continue to ship orders 1-2 times per week as long as UPS and USPS are operating. Read more about these delays on our blog post here as well as how our operations reduce risk here.
We recently introduced our new product, Luna Glass Crock Weights. And so far, they have been a big hit! We developed this product ourselves after seeing a void in the market for a non-pervious crock sized fermenting weight. So we set about designing and prototyping one of our own!
These weights are made to our spefications by a small manufacturer in Poland. The Luna Glass Crock Weights are a unique Stone Creek Trading item, in fact we applied for a patent for them and they are currently US Patent Pending.
We currently offer the Luna Glass Crock Weights in ones size - 6.5" diameter for 5L Crocks. You can buy the weights separately or with the 5L Brown Crock or 5L Olive Green Crock. You also will receive the Luna Glass Crock Weights if you purchase a 5L Fermenting Kit.
We wanted to test the market for the glass weights before we developed a 10L size weight, and I am happy to say our market test has been a success! The 10L size Luna Glass Crock Weights have finished production and are now ready to be loaded and shipped to us. We expect to have them in stock in April. At that time they will be offered with all 10L crocks, the 10L Fermenting Kit and on their own. And after many inquiries as to the small size of the 10L ceramic weights in comparison to the crock diameter, we did some experimentation and came up with a larger size that better fills the interior of the crock. All around these weights will be far superior to the traditional ceramic weights.
We hope you are as excited as we are about these new weights. The Luna Glass Crock Weights are a great way to upgrade your current fermenting set up, or to start out on the right path!
