If you use the "Earl Campbell" hot links, they are already red and quite spicy. Next use 5% vinegar straight, bring to boil add 2-3' pieces od sausage and turn off heat. Let sit until cool and refrigerate for a couple days. These are spicy sour,red and fantastic!

If you cut the water in half and add your own spice i.e. jalapenos, hot sauce or I use dried serrano chiles and rehydrate when I boil the brine you get a hotter sausage

Since there are many different sized "links" on the market, it would be helpful to know what size you are talking about. Either that or how much total weight is involved.
