Thanks for the info. I honestly have no idea why they're getting harder to source over here. Cheers too for the customer side of things (I can imagine it'd be a pain if the wrong wax or application process was used). I was using sleeves on about 300 bottles and thought it'd never end! I was almost glad when my heatgun decided to give up the ghost!
I was at the commercial kitchen last week, making a batch of hot pepper fudge, and saw another client sealing bottles of flavored syrup with wax. I'll try to remember to ask for details next time I see him. If you want, send me a pm to help me remember.
That'd be great, thanks! Any and all tips are appreciated.
Does anyone here use plastic bottles for their sauces? I'm thinking of trying it out due to the fact that my trial run of mail order has resulted in a trial run of people receiving a soggy cardboard boxes full of glass shards!
I know it's possible to get plastic bottles you can hot fill, but I'd imagine the temp can't be nearly as high as when I hot fill glass bottles.
