G'day all,

I have just finished and put my sucuk to ferment for a couple/few days based on the umai dry recipe. I just have a couple of questions:

1. Once in the fridge to cure for 3-4 weeks, what is the target weightloss?

2. The appearance of my sucuk qas rather pale when being stuffed into the casings. Is this a bad sign or can it be narrowed down to aspects such as the cut of meat/ fat ratio or minor differences in ingredients?

3. Lastly, I used accidently 3grams of instacure instead of 2.5g. I also may have been slightly off on the 1/8 tsp for the bactoferm, will this be a major issue or a wait and see approach?

Thanks!

Any suggestions? Ideas?

Ps I also used paprika in place of red pepper by mistake. Any opinions on this?

35 -40%

Probably the meat, should not be a problem, Pics always help.

3. Lastly, I used accidently 3grams of instacure instead of 2.5g. I also may have been slightly off on the 1/8 tsp for the bactoferm, will this be a major issue or a wait and see approach?

Not a problem on either , I would strongly suggest using a minimum of 1 gram culture to ensure a viable amount.

Huge difference in taste not using cayenne, will be bland

Thanks!

G'day Trebor

Thanks for the reply. Here it is straight after being put into thebumai dry casing. Notice what appears to be a bubble is actually just me over stuffing by error not an air bubble (i think)!.

Notice the colour.

If you now look here after approx 48 hours of fermenting its getting redder. So I'm hoping thats a good sign?

Also you'll notice in the last pic where the sucuk was rubbing against each other where it hung it hasnt quite fermented to the same reddish colour? I moved them around slightly but now I'm not sure if i should put them in the fridge or leave it another day to ferment that area that was rubbing?
