  • I'm making fermented hot sauce (thanks to Brad for inspiration) that I will have ~30k to ~87k SHU (estimate based just on amount of peppers used and their lowest and highest SHU score) but probably it will end somewhere around 50k mark (based on taste test of individual peppers varieties used and considering fermentation which might mellow it?). Rookie numbers, lol :D.
