50 gal is still hobby size. A meat grinder is great for continues feed of grinding peppers.
50 gallons of mash is not really "hobby" size. It's certainly not large on a commercial scale, but no hobbyist I know makes anything 50 gallons at a time. This info coming from spending the last couple years in the farmer's market and indie grocery store type level. 50 gallons is roughly 100 cases of 5 ounce woozies. That is 1200 bottles of hot sauce. If you commit to making 1200 bottles of hot sauce, you aren't doing so as a hobby most of the time.
