2hr pickle

What I have done is run a 2 hour citric acid pickle. Shave the skin
neutralize and rinse. Drain well the Liqua Tan.
I have even talked to Steve and he said that a 2 hour pickle works
great, this will work great for speeding up the pickle and allowing
it to penetrate fast and shaving. I would suggest to use the citric
acid, it will neutralize better.

I'm wanting to include alum for the trouble skins(save) but also
prevent or reduce shrinkage during the drying period as much as
possible. thanks frank
