Is there a formaula that i can use to break down seasoning to per pound?? Also how much water should i add when mixing meat up when making bratwurst
@medeling32 Yes, Austin has a good post about this topic that should help you with this (https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/174/using-a-scale-to-measure-seasoning-for-smaller-batches) For water I like to add 1 lb (same as 1 pint) to a 25 lb batch, it makes mixing and stuffing easier. That breaks down to .64 oz of water per lb.
Just thinking about the social media thing. I do follow your Facebook page. ( I think my family took a collective gasp when I finally signed into that). I’m still trying to figure out how the pound symbol(#) ended up being a hashtag!?
@ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.
@Jonathon The sausage was for Easter family dinner that didn’t happen because too many people were sick. The bottom round was sliced deli style & packaged for future French dip & roast beef sammies.
