      Hello Nepas.
      well today is the day. going to try your easy landjaegers. no access to fermento so I got buttermilk powder instead. hope it will suffice.
      I tried landjaeger for the first time from a smoke shack in ohio. loved them.
      my favorite sausage is the dried.
      my question to you is can I use this method of reducing weight 15% to achieve the dried,wrinkly look?
      how long can I savely hang in the garage (canada) night time temps still in 40's.
      Longer the drier?

      Hi Nepas,
      I am getting into the world of Sausage making (dry), and I was wondering if you could give me some tips about the usage of acids, bactoferm, fermento.. I am trying to find a replacement for the fermento which is not dairy based.
      any way, thanks for the great advices you are already giving here:)

      follow up to the previous question as I had exceeded the 1000 character limit.

      My question to you is this, Do you know what is in the "curing" in their kits? If not,
      my next question is, I can buy skim milk powder that we used in the kitchen daily( im a chef by trade), Is that the same as NFDM? If it is the same, in your valued opinion, would that be a suitable replacement for the Hi mountain mixes.

      I thank you

      Hi Nepas

      I read a lot of your posts being the sausage guru you are, trying to enhance my limited repertoire.
      I started making meat sticks using the Hi mountain mixes. I use them as a base and usually enhance them from there. I recently ordered up a 5 lb bag of the seasoning from them thinking I can just add my instacure for the curing part of it. I contacted Hi Mountain asking if there was anything else in their "curing packages" other than the cure, and they responded no. Another said there is a binder as well. they said they have their own cure products in the bags but wont disclose what they are in detail. I even played the allergy card, to no avail.
