I have a customer that called about getting a buffalo hide soft tanned. Being I am not a tannery I would have to send this off to my tannery. Typically I would thaw something like this out in a pickle bath before fleshing but I am not sure that is what I would need to do in this case. My tannery thought about maybe thawing it out in a brine solution with a bactericide i.e. Lysol? Any thoughts about how to thaw so that I could flesh and it wouldn't mess with the tannery's process either? I would be scared to let this thaw at room temp, I believe slippage would occur if done that way.
