I think the important thing is just to get started. You learn a lot by doing. And we can't troubleshoot problems you haven't had yet so just find a vegetable you'd like to ferment and have a crack at it.
Sauerkraut is a good place to start. There is lots of advice - generally sound - floating around the internet about making your own sauerkraut.

I have bought cultures of both kefir and kombucha off Ebay.
My wife bought packet kefir culture from a health-food store
I have not yet made fermented veges, but imagine the 2 most important things with this to be cleanliness in washing and handling and the makeup of the brine. Some commercial cultures are available for fermented veges, others just use the wild bugs present on the veges.

Kefir-making is the quickest, easiest and most utilised process in our household.

Feel free to email me if you want any further info or just post in another thread
Cheers

I've had Kombucha before and I love it, but I've never tried to make any. Also I'd like to know how to do fermented veggies and such. So I'll be happy for some tips.
