That stuff will last forever. No need to freeze it.

You spelled it correctly.

It will keep for a very long time in the fridge. after all, it's pickled. I've never frozen it. What have you got to lose, freeze some and see what happens.

I have gone months and months without any problem. Sauerkraut can do 6 weeks with one arm tied behind its back.

You can get saurerkraut in all sizes to suit your needs. I like sauerekraut on my hot dogs so I buy a tiny can and use it in two sittings.

I buy the kind in a jar which has a lid. The smell stays contained that way and when you open it the kraut will smell the same 6 months later as the day you bought it.
