Hello, I had made a mistake in my pickling stage and wondering if anyone can give me some insight as to what went wrong. I mixed up a batch using saftee acid with the correct formula. I made about 6 gallons of pickle. I checked my pH and it was 1.5. I had a ram pelt go into the pickle that's been dried hard and salted. The ram went through perfectly and was later tanned with no issues. I did NOT dump the pickle, and I put a dried coyote and fox that were NOT salted, just dried and were relaxed with Ultra-soft previously as per instructions. They were rinsed before going into the pickle. I didn't check my pH levels. I believe that's where I went wrong, it must have not been at a safe level. Would this be correct? The skins started slipping bad so I threw them away. Is it because they were dried? Maybe I didn't rinse well enough? Or just my mistake of not checking the pH? This is probably super obvious but I have more dried and salted skins that I might mix together in a new pickle. I WILL check every single time for now on.
