    What ive learned and will share.

    salt: make sure to add the right amount

    stir your pickles folks twice or more per day

    cold weather isnt a pickles friend. salt will sink out of solution more if its cold and even more if you dont stir

    be careful about adding acid to keep pH where you want it. if salt/acid ratio is way off you can get acid burn or swell.

    wear your dang gloves if not in a few days you will wonder why your ears are ringing. its the salt and your blood preasure

    be careful what to use to weigh your capes down in the pickle and how it could affect pH or stir and let cape float hair up

    good luck have fun
