You can thaw the skins and wash them out if needed, I use Relax R 2oz per 5 gallons of water, Kemal 4 will work too. You can run skins through a pickle, either a Pre Tan #110 pickle, any acid pickle or just the salt pickle soak that is described on the bottle. For better skin quality we do suggest a pre tan or acid pickle. If you do not like to deal with ph's and measureing along with neutralizing then you can use Pre tan #110, this way no need to worry about acids. We do offer a free technical handbook to anyone who would like one. You can go to my website at and fill out a contact form or you can just click above on my email and email me you physical mailing address. We do have a new address
