    gadgets Small batch bottle filling solution.

    Glad I'm not the only one who finds concentrating on the process stress relieving!  I also had a pretty crappy funnel TBH.   I had looked around for a metal pitcher as an alternative, but then came across this thing. If you totally fill the pitcher, do you find it hard to wrangle the first few...

    gadgets Small batch bottle filling solution.

    As I've been scaling up production I've also been gradually losing my mind bottling one at a time with a ladle and funnel. :scared:  I truly love every step of small batch sauce making, except the funnel part.  I'm too small fry to justify a fancy expensive pneumatic filler, but was considering...

    shipping Delivering and mailing sauce in the frigid north

      Thanks, You are all delightful.  :) I've cracked a version "hotter sauce" in our shipping terms and have joked about making a winter "ice melter" salt and vodka based hot sauce (barf).   I am likely overthinking it, but it just gets so murderously cold here.  I once threw a test bottle into my...

    small-appliances Hot sauce dispenser

    Thanks Salsalady!  I think I'm going to try assembling myself a brew kettle. I always end up having to adjust thickness with water by the end of bottling, but having to stop and stir it in, then make sure it is back to temp just means more burner time, perhaps I just need to practice up my...

    small-appliances Hot sauce dispenser

    Hey, thanks to everyone on this thread, I am in a similar situation trying to find a solution for sterile bottling.    Bottling using a funnel is time consuming mainly because I find it hard to keep the temp consistent on the stove, plus even though I try to be fast, wear a mask and am in a...

    Love this forum.

    Hello from Saskatchewan!  I love growing peppers (in zone 2  :confused: ) and have found a lot of great info here.   About time for an official hello!
