I am getting ready to put a deer cape into the pickle and am following McKenzie's instructions. 5 gallons of water, 5 pounds of salt, 2.5 ounces of Safetee acid, and I put in 1 ounce of Kemal-4 to help ready the skin also. When I tested the bath, the pH is 1.0. Is this okay? A book I have on doing deer said 2.0 is ideal, but the McKenzie directions say anywhere between 1.0 and 2.0 is okay. Which is more accurate? This is the first deer cape I have tried to tan myself, and only the second deer I have ever worked on at all, so any help would be greatly appreciated!
