i let it age in the fridge till yesterday and cooked a bit more of it. the soy has definitely mellowed a bit. any future recipes from rytek's bible ill cut by 50 percent the amount it calls for.
hard to explain the issue with too much, its a mouthfeel thing. if you have ever grabbed a cold leftover beef hamburger patty out of the fridge and taken a bite of it, after you swallow a bite youve got this cold grease film coating the inside of your mouth for a few seconds- this sausage did that hot and its soy protein doing it not the grease. too much deer in the ratio to be greasy anyway.
no worries, its really mellowed out in a week and now that its frozen i have no doubt the issue is gone for good.
in regards to contacting sausage maker, it may be correct- the actual recipe was for all pork altho its still a lot. rytek's tapwater could have played a part too. the Ph and chemicals in it change what you put it in. where i live now for example, i can not use my tapwater to make beer. very frustrating to use jugs of water for beer, comes out funny.
regardless of water, meat, phase of the moon, methinks ive made enough sausages to know that one cup per five lbs is too much.
try it for yourself and back off if you need to, if not, happy sausages!!!
