Debbie, I enjoy kraut. My mother did not rinse it, but I do. As you say, it isn't dominated by vinegar when you do this.
My favorite kraut of all time was at a little restaurant on Strawberry Hill in KCK. It was called Jennie's. One day a week they served a sausage link from a local butcher, Ragan's, mashed potatoes, and sauerkraut. It was the stuff that dreams are made of! They also served a stuffed noodle called strucla. It was covered in brown gravy with some little meatballs. Neither of them were sandwich meals, but so wonderful!
Sauerkraut sauteed with onions on a Polish sausage with grainy mustard on a fresh bun.
Next: S or N
