I'm about to try tanning my first skin, a coyote, using krowtann. The question is, Im wondering if there is a recommended degreaser to use before krowtanning, or if any of them are fine, or if any of them chemically interfere with the tanning process. Also, is there a need to use stop-rot if there are no indications that the skin is bad? I know that may sound like a dumb question, but i thought maybe i could use a little stop rot just for an extra safety measure. Thanks

If KROTANN IS A TAN, WHY WOULD IT BE DIFFERENT? Use a degreaser with it just like you would with any other tan. It's all in the archives.
Super Solvent (Catalog #SS-618) works great on Alum treated skins and capes! So there shouldnt be a problem! Mix 2 fl. ozs. to each 1 gallon of water - soak for 30 minutes - rinse - and your cape or skin should be squeaky clean!

PS - It's also an excellent degreaser for skulls, bird and fish skins too!
you should not have a problem as yotes are not really very greasy to begin with. i like to degrease immediatly after relaxing. follow the directions and do not over use.
