Hello, first post looking for advice!

Hi Everyone,

I would be grateful for some advice on whether I am approaching this correctly....

I've recently made my first batch of fermented Louisiana Style Hot Sauce in a 1 litre jar which contained:

360g Red Chilli's
79g Tomatoes
50g Onion
5 Gloves Garlic

This turned out pretty well because I followed a recipe to get to grips with the process. Now, if I wanted to make a larger batch of the sauce in a 3 litre jar would I ratio up the ingredients & brine 3x to produce a similar result? Or would the sauce be considerably hotter due more peppers being included?

Many thanks and kind regards

Welcome. I would just increase all ingredients the same. you should end up with identical sauce from the first batch.
