        So you dont need a jar with the lids that allow your sauce to gas off, just burp it once a day?

                            I got a two questions. After it's bottled, does the sauce continue to ferment? If so, do you have to burp the bottles?

                              Yes it will. But put it in the fridge. It will slow down that process, and burping not as necessary, as long as your eating it once a week. The most activity happens first few weeks of fermentation so alot of gas release. I've fermented hot sauce last cpl years, I do a variation of this one, with cherries added and a few other things replaced. I have big bottles and have left this sauce on the counter, and in the fridge, off and on for over a year. The taste just gets better and better. and bottles never exploded. Gotta love natural preservation.

                                                                                    2 quarts of water is 1892.7 grams

                                                                                    108/1892.7 = 0.05761

                                                                                    So if I’m not mistaken it’s 5.7% brine solution??
