  • If you squint you can see that I am standing next to 11,673 gallons of wine. Holy fermentation, Batman! 😳🍷⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • A few weeks ago, I celebrated my 41st birthday. As a gift to myself, I took a break from social media for as long as I felt necessary. Sort of like a mental and emotional vacation ... and apparently that vacation needed to last 3 weeks. 😋⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Another gift was to spend my birthday weekend in the Napa Valley and Sonoma County enjoying some wine and some "us" time. But it wasn't all wine and games. We also tended to a bit of business while in the area. ✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We're coming up on our last few weeks at our workamping positions on the coast and it's time for the next adventure. There is still so much for us to learn in the world of wine and beer making and fermentation. So, we're settling down in wine country for the fall and getting our hands dirty working our first "crush". It'll be long hours and a lot of hard work, but the education and experience will be invaluable. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And just think of all the wine we'll drink! 🤪🍇🍷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • I LOVE botanical gardens and @mendocoastbotanicalgardens is one of the prettiest I've been to. The diversity of California's plant life is just stunning. I'm constantly in awe just driving down the road and it never gets old. 😳😍

I think the Ladybird poppies might be my favorite, but swipe to see some more stunners. 🌷🌹🌺🌸🌼🌿

  • I'm an introvert and some days I just cannot bring myself to interact with the world. This makes social media very difficult for me, as I'm also very private, so sharing even the littlest bit of myself on here is not only mentally exhausting, but physically draining. So I go dark for a day or two at a time and this past weekend was busy - we both work weekends and have for a long time - and I desperately needed to stay quiet. 😶⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In spite of my introverted ways, I genuinely enjoy interacting with people and socializing. But I need that balance of quiet time and solitude every so often. And sometimes I just need a stroll through a beautiful botanical garden to find my reset button for the week. 🌲🌲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

INTRODUCING

A New Brand From The Modern Journeymen

The Modern Journeymen are excited to announce our brand new line of simple, quality products for fermenters, homesteaders, crafters and artisans!


About Wildcraft Culture

In the few years that we’ve been doing what we do, we’ve discovered a culture of creative and self-sufficient people who have a need for uncomplicated, efficient tools.

In our own search, we've had some difficulty finding good quality products that work the way we want them to.

We decided to start designing a range of tools to fill that need, whether it be for fermentation, crafting, or just plan ol' homesteading.

Tools that make creating & crafting easier for the beginner, but are also dependable and durable enough for everyday use to give you more consistent quality through all your batches.

With Wildcraft Culture, each product is tested personally by us for durability and ease of use.

As always, we want to share knowledge and teach those of you who are just getting started and provide expert resources for those who are past the basics.

Therefore, we will regularly post training videos, inspirational content and recipes for all of our products.


We enjoy the variety of ferments we get by doing small batches in mason jars. Instead of the standard crocks and larger vessels, we enjoy making pint, quart, and half gallon batches of our ferments.

But we weren't happy with the tools available and wanted something better.

So, for our first product, we wanted to create a tool that would make fermenting in jars less intimidating and a little more foolproof...

A WIDE MOUTH MASON JAR

FERMENTATION KIT


Fermenting Weights

Easy Grip Handle

Our innovative design comes with a large glass handle for easy placement and removal into wide mouth mason jars.

Smooth Flat Bottom

Ensures even pressure on your ingredients and prevents air bubbles forming below the weight.

Non-porous & Lead Free

Weights are made of lead-free solid glass, making them easy to clean and will not take on any odors or colors, even with everyday use.

Reduces Infections

Helps keep the nasties away (mold, fungus, etc.), by ensuring that your veggies stay beneath the brine in an anaerobic environment.

Silicone Airlocks

Waterless Airlocks

Unlike traditional airlocks, ours require no liquid or pumps to function properly.

Automatically Vents

Prevents oxygen from entering the jar but allows CO2 gas to escape through a small slit.

Food Grade Silicone

Made from food grade silicone, there is no worry about it coming in contact with your ferment.

Low Profile Design

Easily store your ferments in tighter spaces, such as a shelf or in a cabinet.

Guides, Recipes and Support

Just started fermenting? We're here to help. We'll regularly post new recipe ideas and fermenting guides on the site. And feel free to reach out with any specific questions.

Everything is Dishwasher Safe

No time to hand wash? No problem! Our lids and airlocks are made tough. Just toss in the dishwasher with other plates and glassware.

Comes with 4 Different Airlock Colors

Easily identify your ferments with different airlock colors. Included in every set is one of each: Red, Blue, Green & Purple
