Shelf life: fish brine

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hey!

I'm wondering how long I can keep my fish brine for before the flavors begin to deteriorate.  The brine is a usual combination of water, salt, brown sugar, spices. After brining the fish for 1 hour I will remove it. But can I use this brine a few times over and how long will it be good for?

Thanks

No. No no no no no no no. Please don't reuse brine.

Better to make a big batch of brine and pull smaller amounts of it each time you brine fish.

Reusing brine is for shoemakers.

Well...."shoemakers" is a bit harsh.

 

Its just water, a bit of sugar and a bit of salt, and maybe a few peppercorns. 

 

In other words, its cheap to make. 

 

Why risk contamination of expensive fish  if its that cheap to make brine?

 

In other words, same conclusion that Someday made..
