Just getting into maceration, this is my first attempt. Water has been between 80-90*F. Got ahead of myself and changed the water on day four so I could move the stinky bucket from the garage to the shed. The meat has rotted away but there is still this tough membrane(?) around the skull. This skull has been in water since last week Monday. Will this membrane stuff rot off if I leave the skull in the warm water? The water and skull still stink to high heaven, so I think the bacteria is still working. Probably shouldn’t have changed the water so soon, I realize that was probably a mistake that set the process back a little. Pictures of day 1, day 4, and today.
