What is 50 grain vinager ? It says to add 8 oz. in your chorizo recipe??? Can I use regular white vinegar and if so how much for 25 lb batch???
50 grain vinegar is the same thing as 5% acidity vinegar. Typical distilled white vinegar from any grocery store is usually right at or around 5%. If you already have some white vinegar at home, it probably is 5% acidity (and it should list what % it is), and if not, it should be super easy to find at any grocery store!
@mcmillenbr Need some more details. 5 pound batch? How much water are you using? I have never had water run out.
I tried making snack sticks for the second time. This time I added citric acid for some tang. The mix never got sticky and when I stuffed the casing it was not smooth and the water seperated and ran out on the counter top. The meat was like little seperated lumps in the casings. After cooking, they tasted good, but the texture was like compressed saw dust.
Do you have a recipe to share?
