You can buy it at any grocery in the canned veggie aisle, but most will have been pasteurized and have no live probiotics. Try health food stores, maybe.

yea the stuff you get in the store sucks compared to homemade. The only store brand I know of that still has live cultures is called "Bubbies". They make some good fermented pickles too but it just costs too much when its so easy to make. I use whey as a starter like is suggested in Nourishing Traditions but I dont think its really required. Im not a huge fan of sauerkraut buts good when you throw a bunch of other things in too. You know you can basically lacto-ferment any vegetable you want. A good book to check out if you want to get into it is called "WIld Fermentation", dont know the author off the top of my head but i got it off amazon for like $10.

'Nourishing Traditions' has recipes for fermenting all kinds of veggies. You might find some recipes posted on the Weston Price Foundation site.
