Ah looks good, but not sure about wire holding them down, looks like galvanized which will leach into brine, because of acid in brine..might taint the batch...maybe someone else will pooh, pooh me....hope i am wrong or you can chabge it with something else soon.

Move the peppers to a sanitized glass jar and get the peppers below the waterline. Next screw on a sanitized lid with an air lock in it and set the peppers in an out of the way place at room temperature. Then go about you life for 12 or 13 months. Come back next year and seperate the peppers from the liquid. Grind the peppers into a puree. Add in vinegar (start at 25% the puree or more to taste) if you want it thinner add in a little of the brine liquid. Bottle and enjoy you fermented hot sauce.

I have a quart of pepper mash that been on the counter for about the last 60 weeks waiting from me to have time and initiative to make hot sauce.

Also until you get an air lock you can burp the jar every day. The risk doin this is opening the jar to let out CO2 also can let omni present non-beneficial molds in. The air lock is a simple water trap that lets gas out but air cannot back flow in.
Good info their you can get air locks at any place that sells beer and wine making supplies
