In Topic: Correcting Metal Taste in my Hot Sauce. Anyone?

Today, 11:20 AM

I love that we're all "What did you cook it in?" as a first guess.  SS won't impart that flavor, and the OXO food mill is also stainless.  


Last year I had a batch with a similar metallic taste at the end, made w similar ingredients; fermented yellow supers, onion, garlic, pineapple, rice wine vinegar, clover honey.  Tasted great up front, tasted like sucking on pennies at the finish.


Tried to add more vinegar/honey to help soften that finish but wasn't ever completely satisfied with the sauce and ended up throwing the whole batch out before bottling.

I've had that before CS - very frustrating.  Felt like I spent almost as much time trimming and pulling little bits of the membrane off as I did cooking the damn ribs!

In Topic: Red flags of "newbie" seed scammers on THP

check out their post count and activity on THP if they seem to be trying to scam.  anyone legit who's an active participant around here will easily pass such an inspection.


I've sent seeds/sauces and never received the money or agreed upon trades like most around here, but we learn fast.  :)
