My question concerns pickle acids. I'm tanning using Lutan F. Would it be alright to use an acetic acid? Which, as I understand it, is white vinegar.

Yes. ph 0f 2.5 or below
citric acid works well and is safe to use. i use citric and lutan-f and have had real good luck.
Iprefer oxalic acid when using LUTAN F. However,if you haven't given KROWTANN 2000 a try you need to it's easy to use and yields one of the best tans I've seen. Do not tumble the hide though it loses stretch if you do,it's truly a wet tan and should be mounted so.
I use to use oxalic acid, lysol and salt for my pickling soultion, but it has been about 4 years since I've done any tanning, now I have 2 black bear hides to tan and i can't seem to find my formulas, can any one tell me it seem like it was
with a PH of 2.5 to 3
rinse in solution of baking soda and water
the tan in Zink sulfate,
and i cant recall the zink formula either.
I use to get very good results with this, and I know I have a copy of it some where. thanks , owln
