MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 30, 2013

I've made this twice now for different groups of people and this was a HIT. The #2 time I just made the kraut to go with my friends "always grilling brats for 4th of July" party. The triple batch pleased the 20-30 people so much many went for seconds.

MY REVIEW

Excellent!

I only had 5 bratwurst, but followed the rest of the recipe as written. If I use 12 as the recipe lists, I'd double the amount of the rest of the ingredients. My family loves sauerkraut!
