Stacking Pints in Canner

Dee, mine only came with one rack. But I could get two rows of half pints or those smaller flat jelly jars in there. Back when I bought my canner in the 70's I think there were only quart and pint size jars.

You can stack them without a rack, but you must stagger the jars, not one on top of the other.

Yes, but be aware it does take a little longer to pressurize and depressurize. Considering that you are cutting out another load, it definitely saves time.

Shrimp don't process as long as the fish, so you don't have to add extra water with it. Just the standard 2-3 inches of water. You also need to acidify the shrimp first with lemon juice.
You will need to check the guidelines for canning shrimp.
