Storing brush on tanned deer cape, bacteria?

    I'm getting ready to use mckenzie tan on my deer capes. I've gotten good results already on back hides as practice. It states that you can freeze the deer cape after 4 hours of penetration. Will that not reintroduce bacteria during the thawing process before I set it to the form? Thus slip issues? Anyone pretty familiar with brush on tans?

    If it was tanned properly, no more than thawing out a commercial wet tan.
